REQUEST: Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration No. 11-012 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with the construction of a westbound right turn lane on Warner Avenue at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and associated improvements including a new five-foot wide sidewalk along the west side of A Lane for a length of approximately 150 feet. In addition, the project’s scope of work includes clearing and grubbing, the construction of asphalt concrete roadway, striping, curb, gutter, sidewalk, landscaping and relocation of existing signage on the adjacent gas station parcel, reconstruction of driveways on the adjacent gas station and liquor store properties, removal of a defunct drainage inlet, relocation of irrigation lines on the auto repair property, and utility and traffic signal adjustment and relocation, including a fire hydrant and one utility pole. Above- and below-ground utilities within the right-of-way and on private property will be protected in-place or relocated during project construction. The proposed project would require right-of-way acquisition from adjacent privately owned commercial properties to the north (16990 Beach Boulevard/APN:107-011-067; 8021 Warner Avenue/APN:107-100-068; 8071 Warner Avenue/APN: 107-100-078). The acquisition of right-of-way along Warner Avenue varies in width from nine to 14 feet. Acquisition on the west side of A Lane would be three feet. Variances will be required to deviate from resulting development standards on the adjacent commercial properties that would be non-compliant as a result of the project’s right-of-way acquisition. In addition, with Beach Boulevard being a state highway, the project will require review and approval by Caltrans
