Brentwood Community Council’s Initial Response to Munger Building Draft Environmental Impact Report: More Homework Needed

The Brentwood Community Council, the broadest based Brentwood Community organization, submitted its letter of comments addressing the DEIR of the Green Hollow Square Project.
There are potential significant adverse environmental impacts from the proposed project.
The letter, whose highlights are included here, speaks to several topics, most notably a Traffic Analysis Report involving traffic flow, stop lights in and out of the property, and a potential cut through of the median for a left/U turn.
Of concern is the nature and degree of mitigation of project impacts on the Saltair/San Vicente intersection and on local/residential roadways. The DEIR is deficient with respect to describing impacts on pedestrian safety from a traffic signal and/or possible median cut at the east end of the proposed project.
Questions arise regarding a Conditional Use Permit for on-site and off-site sale of alcoholic beverages at three restaurants and a boutique wine/liquor store. The proposed project includes 6,800 sq ft. of restaurant space and 3,700 sq. ft of outdoor dining area. Subjects addressed were noise, parking locations for patrons and employees, and location of restaurants in relation to neighbors living behind the project.
Mitigation Measures need to address aesthetic, traffic, noise and land use aspects.
Construction impacts concern the construction stage, the impact on the nearby neighbors and the impacts on traffic and transportation on the surrounding streets.
The preservation Alternative 4 is insufficient because it does not disclose in adequate detail the appearance of the preservation alternative. It is not possible to understand from the graphics to what extent the Barry Building will or will not integrate with the proposed surrounding new development.
Finally, the DEIR does not adequately describe in detail the ways and the extent the proposed project is inconsistent with the San Vicente Scenic Corridor Specific Plan and the Brentwood-Palisades Community Plan.
