The City Council hereby adopts, by reference, the CEQA- required "Statement of <br />Findings ", attached as Exhibit "EIR -1" to the resolution certifying the project <br />Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The Statement of Findings constitutes a set <br />of binding obligations effective upon this project approval. Pursuant to Section <br />15091 of the State CEQA Guidelines, the Statement of Findings summarizes the <br />impacts of the project, the mitigation measures required to avoid or substantially <br />lessen each of those impacts, and the "substantial evidence in the record" <br />supporting the finding of each such impact which will be avoided or substantially <br />lessened. <br />2.

The EIR identifies certain environmental <br />impacts of the project which cannot be avoided or substantially lessened. The <br />City Council has balanced these significant adverse environmental impacts <br />against environmental benefits and other benefits resulting from approval of the <br />proposed Project, which are identified in the Statement of Overriding <br />Considerations, and hereby finds that the benefits override the identified adverse <br />environmental impacts. <br />3. The City Council hereby adopts, by reference, the "Mitigation Monitoring and <br />Reporting Program" (MMRP), attached as Exhibit "EIR -3" to the resolution <br />certifying the project Environmental Impact Report, and directs that mitigation <br />measures be implemented in accordance with the MMRP. <br />4.

This Ordinance shall be published once in the official newspaper of the <br />City, and the Ordinance shall become effective upon certification by the City Clerk to the <br />2 <br />
