Section 2. The Planning Commission of the City of Santa Ana recommends <br />that the City Council adopt an ordinance pre -zoning the real properties generally located <br />at the northeast corner of Seventeenth Street and Tustin Avenue and Amended <br />Sectional District Map number 4-5-9 showing the above described change in use district <br />designation (AA No. 2018-07). This recommendation is based upon the evidence <br />submitted at the above said hearing, which includes, but is not limited to: The Request <br />for Planning Commission and Council Action dated December 10, 2018 and September <br />3, 2019, respectively and exhibits attached thereto; and the public testimony, all of <br />which are incorporated herein by this reference. <br />Section 3. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act <br />(CEQA) and the State CEQA Guidelines, a categorical exemption will be filed for this <br />project pursuant to section 15319. This Class 19 exemption applies to projects <br />involving annexation of existing facilities and lots for exempt facilities such as public and <br />private structures developed to the density allowed by the pre -zoning of the City. The <br />proposed annexation area is developed to the density allowed by the current zoning or <br />pre -zoning, with the extension of utility services having the capacity to serve only the <br />existing facilities. More specifically, the proposed annexation will consist of the 24.78- <br />acre parcels of land in its entirety that includes private residential and commercial <br />structures as well as three vacant parcels of land that are located at the southwest <br />section of the annexation area. As the annexation area is developed to the density <br />allowed by both the current zoning of the County and the pre -zoning designations <br />proposed by the City, and no new utility services are proposed for the existing <br />structures within the annexation area as part of this project, the Class 19 exemption is <br />applicable to this project. The City Council has, as a result of its consideration and the <br />evidence presented at the hearings on this matter, determined that, as required <br />pursuant to CEQA, a categorical exemption adequately addresses the expected <br />environmental impacts of this project. On the basis of this review, the City Council finds <br />that there is no evidence from which it can be fairly argued that the project will have a <br />significant adverse effect on the environment therefore, it is categorically exempt from <br />the requirement for the preparation of environmental documents. Based on this <br />analysis, a Notice of Exemption for Environmental Review No. will be filed for this <br />project. <br />Section 4. The zoning designation of the real properties generally located <br />within the 24.78-acre County island at the northeast corner of Seventeenth Street and <br />Tustin Avenue shall be reclassified from the County's Local Business (C-1) and Single - <br />Family Dwellings (R-1) designations to Community Commercial (Cl), Single - <br />Family Residence (R-1) and Two -Family Residence (R-2). An amended Sectional District <br />Map, showing the above described changes in use district designation, is hereby approved <br />and attached hereto as Exhibit 1 and incorporated by this reference as though fully set <br />forth herein. <br />Section 5. This ordinance shall not be effective unless and until Resolution No. <br />2019-079 (Environmental Review No. 2018-89 and General Plan Amendment No. 2018- <br />04) is adopted and becomes effective. If either resolution and/or ordinance are for any <br />reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by the decision of any court of competent <br />Ordinance No. NS-2974 <br />Page 2 of 5 <br />
