Pursuant to Section 15164 of the CEQA Guidelines, the City of San José has prepared an Addendum to the Final Environmental Impact Report because minor changes made to the project, as described below, do not raise important new issues about the significant impacts on the environment.

The environmental impacts of this project were addressed by the following Final Environmental Impact Report: “The West San Carlos Mixed-Use Project Draft Environmental Impact Report adopted by City Council Resolution No. 80189 on August 24, 2021. The proposed project is eligible for an addendum pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15164, which states that “A lead agency or responsible agency shall prepare an addendum to a previously certified EIR if some changes or additions are necessary but none of the conditions described in CEQA Guidelines §15162 calling for preparation of a subsequent EIR have occurred.” Circumstances which would warrant a subsequent EIR include substantial changes in the project or new information of substantial importance which would require major revisions of the previous EIR due to the occurrence of new significant impacts and/or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects.


This IS/Addendum has been prepared as part of the supplemental environmental review process needed to evaluate the proposed project. In accordance with CEQA, this IS/Addendum would tier from the 1530-1544 West San Carlos Street Mixed-Use Project FEIR (SP20-004), available at the following link:
