If the Lead Agency finds that the project may have a significant impact on the environment and that there are no obvious measures the applicant can take to mitigate potential problems, an EIR will be required. An EIR may also be required if further study is needed to provide information necessary in determining whether or not the project could have a significant impact.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF A DRAFT EIR
The applicant requests (1) a Tentative Parcel Map (TPM) to authorize the four-lot subdivision of an existing legal lot; (2) a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to authorize the construction of a community waste water treatment facility (CWWTF); and (3) a Planned Development (PD) Permit to authorize the construction of a 360-unit farmworker housing complex. The proposed farmworker housing complex is intended to be 100 percent affordable to farmworkers who qualify as lower income, which is classified as individuals and families who make 80 percent or below the area median income.
