Petition to temporarily halt large-scale developments until…

This petition was read to the City Council at their Strategic Planning Session in June 2020 and to the Planning Commission on July 20, 2020 in non-agenda public comment, as well as read as public comment non-agenda item at their August 3, 2020 meeting.

We the neighbors of Alhambra and the greater San Gabriel Valley call on the City of Alhambra (i.e. the Planning Commission, Design Review Board and City Council) to implement a moratorium on large-scale developments in Alhambra, including “The Villages” at Fremont and Mission in Alhambra, …

  1. …Until the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for “The Villages” includes a study of traffic, as well as particulate matter and air pollution, using “Vehicle Miles Traveled” (VMT), under California Environmental Quality Act’s (CEQA) Section 15064.3.  Using the limited methodology of Level of Service (LOS) in the D-EIR rather than VMT, the Draft EIR(DEIR) only examined intersections localized to 4,000 feet from the project. However, given that the City of Alhambra is approximately 8 square miles and the project will impact the greater San Gabriel Valley, the current LOS methodology used to assess traffic is inadequate, because LOS methodology limits traffic data collection to intersections no more than three miles from the proposed project and does not study how greenhouse gas emissions are impacted in the region or how multimodal transportation is incorporated, like VMT methodology does.
  2. …Until Alhambra’s Traffic Commission provides guidance to the City regarding immediate adoption of the above-mentioned CEQA Section 15064.3.as opposed to waiting until July 1, 2020, when all cities in the state of California are required to follow CEQA Section 15064.3 and use VMT methodology. Per Section 15064.3 (c) of CEQA guidelines, “Any agency may immediately apply the new CEQA guidelines in its CEQA analysis.”
  3. …Until an Affordable Housing ordinance is adopted in Alhambra
    • “The Villages” currently has no enforceable plan to include affordable housing units, and when community members have approached the developers for more specifics, inconsistent and vague responses have been given.
    • Another development called “Woodhaven” still in construction at Marengo/Valley nine blocks away from “The Villages”, includes 124 multi-story condos but offers no affordable housing
  4. …Until several large-scale projects nearby, which are absent from mention in the D- EIR but which will impact traffic on Fremont, are finalized or recognized, and their traffic and environmental impacts are studied and considered:
    • Formerly planned Lowes lot across the street from the proposed “Villages” site, which remains vacant
    • the SR-710 freeway stub and T-1 Connector Road, 4,000 feet southwest of proposed “Villages” site
    • 124 “Woodhaven” condos 9 blocks away at Valley/Marengo
    • USC-CSULA Bioscience Corridor/Hub/Triangle Project that is proposed, with the Villages being the NE anchor and which will greatly increase the VMT traffic within the 10+ square mile VMT corridor.
  1. …Until A Developer Accountability Ordinance is adopted in Alhambra
    • In early 2019, TAG2 / St. Clair /Lennar developers violated their own 2017 Tree Plan at the “Woodhaven” site by razing trees slated to be untouched, even after they got the approval and vote from the City of Alhambra
    • In June 2019, the owner-developer of a property leased by a Sikh Temple deceived the Alhambra Planning Commission about the occupancy of his property in favor of demolishing it to build a condo development. In December 2019, a majority of commissioners on the Planning Commission said they would not have approved the demolition of the temple had they known it was home to a vibrant religious community.
