Scotts Valley Town Center Specific Plan EIR Section 4.8 Land Use

Table 4.8-1. Policy Consistency

OSG-316

To protect and conserve the natural resources of the planning area including plant and animal habitats, mineral resources, water courses and air quality.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to these natural resources are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSO-317

Minimize the disturbance or removal of native vegetation.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to native vegetation are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSP-318

New development proposed in, or adjacent to, areas containing native plant communities shall be carefully planned and provide for the conservation and maintenance of those plants.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related native plants are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSA-322

Development of vacant land located within valuable habitats shall be limited to low densities, cluster developments, and/or passive recreational uses.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to sensitive habitats are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSO-324

Establish protective measures for habitat areas of particular environmental sensitivity and for rare or endangered animal species.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to these natural resources are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSP-325

Environmentally sensitive habitat areas and rare or endangered animal species shall be preserved.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to these natural resources are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

OSA-327

Through the permit process, ensure land uses in or adjacent to environmentally sensitive habitats shall attempt to avoid significant impairment of an environmentally sensitive habitat area’s habitat value without adequate mitigation measures.

Potentially Consistent. Impacts related to these natural resources are discussed in Section 4.3, Biological Resources.

Consistency Discussion

Potentially Consistent. Noise impacts are discussed in Section 4.9, Noise.

Potentially Consistent. Noise impacts are discussed in Section 4.9, Noise.

Potentially Consistent. Noise impacts are discussed in Section 4.9, Noise.

Potentially Consistent. Noise impacts are discussed in Section 4.9, Noise.

Potentially Consistent. The Town Center Specific Plan would adhere to this policy.

Potentially Consistent. The Town Center Specific Plan contains a “town green” in the center of the plan area, buffered from noise impacts by mixed-use buildings.

City of Scotts Valley

NO-441

Promote new land uses that have noise generation/sensitivity characteristics that are compatible with neighboring land uses, based on the day-night average A-weighted noise levels.

NA-444

New developments that are considered noise sensitive shall not be located in proximity to existing noise generating uses where the existing noise level is considered incompatible with the proposed new sensitive use.

NA-448

Through the environmental review process, identify and require noise level mitigation of potentially significant noise impacts. Deny new developments that cannot mitigate significant adverse noise level impacts on neighboring land uses.

NP-451

New developments shall include noise attenuation measures to reduce the effects of existing noise to an acceptable level.

NP-455

The City planning and building department shall ensure noise attenuation techniques are constructed in new development projects.

NA-461

Outdoor recreation areas, especially in residential neighborhoods, should incorporate noise attenuation barriers, such as multiple rows of dense conifers, if the day-night noise levels exceed 60 dBA.
