Addenda to Westfield Valley Fair FEIR

2008
This addendum was prepared for: 1) the relocation and construction of parking structure “F” to include one below grade level; and 2) reconfiguration of the proposed small shop retail and two anchor stores on the southern portion of the mall structure. The project also includes the construction of an additional parking structure (“H”) in the southwest portion of the site, between Stevens Creek Boulevard and the Macys Mens/Housewares Store in Santa Clara. These changes are the only elements of the previously approved project that are different from what was analyzed in the EIR. The new proposal would not change the square footage of retail area or the number of parking spaces proposed by the previous project.
