EPti 1'FI\, Cit} ttome� CONTRACTOR Name: Title: 71 ,��><'�C i� l %�1 f�• tom)_ fr' Crnmactur is a coi-porataii, add .igitaniro of ;ecand Corporate of liver] By i` alll2: Title: City of San Rafael February 16, 2021 Approach and Scope of Work LAK Associates, LLC is pleased to submit this Scope of Work pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) required for environmental review of the proposed Los Gamos Apartments project. As planners we are sensitive to our clients' objectives for creating and maintaining a superior and legally defensible document. Our focus is to make the environmental analysis and report preparation run as smoothly and timely as possible. We will work with representatives of applicant team and the City of San Rafael to comprehensively and expeditiously prepare the CEQA document for the Los Gamos Apartments project. The project site consists of two assessor's parcels: 1) The "Northern Parcel" located at APN 165- 220-07 with a zoning designation of PD -H (Planned District - Hillside Development Overlay District) and, 2) the "Southern Parcel" currently zoned R2a-H (Residential - Hillside Development Overlay District). Each of the parcels currently have the HRR (Hillside Resource Residential general plan designation.) Our understanding of the project is that the applicant is proposing 192 multifamily units and retail and community service facilities contained in six (6) buildings as follows: • 2 buildings of 3 -stories above parking; • 3 buildings of 4 -stories above parking; and • 1 building of 2 -stories above parking that will house community service facilities for the residents, a retail market use, and a plaza open to the public. The project includes clustered development and located significantly downslope on the site and close to Los Gamos Drive, in order to preserve the community -wide visibility of the hillside above. The project is intended to be affordable by design, with smaller units resulting in rents more affordable for the local workforce and will contribute towards the City of San Rafael's housing goals and inclusionary rate of 10% Below Market Rate units. The proposed project will provide 224 on-site parking spaces. The proposal also includes accessible hiking trails connecting to adjacent open space, a small passive park area and a children's playground area that incorporates natural elements such as wood logs, and a slide. The project also includes a community center called the "Village Commons," which will house a market/coffee shop that would be open to the public and conveniently located near Los Gamos Drive. The proposed Village Commons will also include a community room and outdoor plaza for use by project residents with shared outdoor areas, including a children's play area, stepped lawn terraced seating, and more seating in an olive grove setting. The project also includes planting over 180 trees to further blend the development with the landscape. It is also our understanding that the project will require several discretionary entitlements as part of the proposal including the redesignation of both of the parcels to the Neighborhood Commercial Mixed Use 2040 general plan designation. The application also seeks the rezoning Exhibit 1 City of San Rafael February 16, 2021 of both parcels to Planned Development District (PD) pursuant to General Plan 2020 Policy LU - 10 Planned Development Zoning, which requires a Planned Development zoning for development on lots larger than five acres in size, and General Plan 2040 Policy LU -1.15 Planned Development Zoning, which encourages a PD zoning for lots larger than 5 acres. The proposed project density would be within the 8.7-24.2 units/acre range of this category, as do the residential and supermarket uses. Specific development standards and allowable uses will be established for the PD as part of the development review process and pursuant to the plans submitted. LAK also understand that the project will not request a Density Bonus per State Density Bonus Law but will seek concessions/incentives and/or modification/waivers for building heights and parking ratios as designated in the application materials. As part of our work scope, we will review the available background information, including all materials on file, plans and supporting data as well as reports prepared by City staff. If there are any critical gaps in the data, we will identify the methodologies required to obtain the necessary materials. We will then identify the necessary steps to achieve project approval and schedules required to gain these approvals. Working with the city staff, we will strive to create an efficient and appropriate work plan to satisfy both the applicant and the greater San Rafael community. LAK Associates will work with Ali Giudice and other city staff of the City of San Rafael to achieve the timeline and submittal deadlines. Working with the appropriate members of City staff, LAK will coordinate review and approval efforts to ensure a streamlined permitting process. LAK will also help coordinate with local community leaders to receive input and support during the preparation of the CEQA document. Where needed, LAK will contract with various sub - consultants to prepare specific portions of the environmental analysis, as agreed upon with the City of San Rafael and the Project Team. For the Los Gamos Apartments project, LAK Associates would perform the following general services: • Review of the City's General Plan, Zoning Ordinance, PD, reports and other background materials relevant to the proposed development site, including relevant existing or proposed projects within the City and Marin County. • Review of proposed development plans and application materials prepared by applicant. • Meetings with the Project Team, as directed by the City of San Rafael, to review administrative drafts for CEQA and other environmental documents prior to public notice and comment periods. • Meetings with the design team, as directed by City of San Rafael. • Meetings, as directed by the City of San Rafael, from time to time, with City and County staff, federal, state and local agency staff, interested stakeholders, including special interest groups and individuals to further the objectives of the applicant. City of San Rafael February 16, 2021 • Telephone and electronic communication, as necessary, to facilitate the project application process. • Assistance in the identification, selection and management of technical environmental consultants, as directed by City of San Rafael and applicant. • Written staff reports, memoranda, letters, and other documentation, as requested by the City of San Rafael. • Oral presentations, as required. • Other, unspecified services, as requested by City of San Rafael.
