3. PETITION DOCUMENT: MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION NO. 2009-001 (ATLANTA AVENUE WIDENING)
APPLICANT: Jonathan Claudio, City of Huntington Beach – Public Works Department
REQUEST: To analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with a proposal to widen the south side of Atlanta Avenue, between Huntington Street and Delaware Street, to comply with the primary arterial street classification in the General Plan Circulation Element. The proposed street improvements will provide an additional through lane and bike lane in each direction of travel. In addition, the project includes clearing and grubbing, the construction of asphalt concrete roadway, striping, curb, gutter, sidewalk, an 8-foot tall concrete block wall atop a variable height (7 ft. max.) retaining wall, landscaping (including the removal or relocation of 25 trees within the existing mobile home park), reconstruction of a 26 ft. wide drive aisle (circulation road) and emergency access gates within the mobile home park, and utility and fire hydrant adjustment and relocation. The project requires approval of a Coastal Development Permit (CDP) for development within the Coastal Zone and a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the construction of the retaining wall. Construction of the proposed street improvements will require the acquisition of an additional 25 feet of public street right-of-way south of the centerline of Atlanta Avenue. The additional 25 feet of right-of-way will come from a 25 feet wide by 630 feet long (approx.) strip of land from the Pacific Mobile Home Park located immediately south of Atlanta Avenue. The acquisition of the 25 feet would impact eight manufactured/mobile homes (Unit Nos. 101, 102, 201, 301, 302, 401, 501, and 502) within the park. The impacted residents would need to be relocated pursuant to the Federal Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 ("The Uniform Act"). At this time it cannot be determined where the impacted residents would be relocated and, therefore, relocation of the residents will be analyzed as a separate project pursuant to CEQA..
