The City has performed an environmental review of the project. The environmental review examined the nature and extent of any adverse effects on the environment that could occur if the project is approved and implemented. Based on the review, the City has prepared a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for this project. An MND is a statement by the City that the project would not have a significant effect on the environment if the project implements the protective measures (mitigation measures) identified during the environmental review.

The public is welcome to review and comment on the Draft MND. The public comment period for this Draft MND begins on September 11, 2018, and ends on October 1, 2018.

The Draft MND and supporting Initial Study and technical appendices are available. The documents are also available for review from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at the City of San José Department of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement, located at City Hall, 200 East Santa Clara Street; and at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Main Library, located at 150 E.
