Planning Commission Resolution No. PC2020-040 <br />Page 3 of 43 <br /> <br /> <br />as a Program Environmental Impact Report (“PEIR”). This PEIR analyzed the potential <br />impacts of a citywide land use plan, and the goals and policies of 10 general plan elements. <br /> <br />Additionally, on November 22, 2011, the City Council adopted General Plan Amendment <br />No. GP2008-003, thereby approving the City of Newport Beach Housing Element Update <br />(2008-2014) and its associated Housing Element and Initial Study/Negative Declaration <br />under CEQA. The PEIR and Initial Study/Negative Declaration are collectively referred to <br />herein as the “PEIR”). <br /> <br />2. Pursuant to Section 21166 of the California Public Resources Code and Section 15162 <br />of the CEQA Guidelines, when an EIR has been certified for a project, no subsequent <br />EIR is required unless the lead agency determines, on the basis of substantial evidence <br />in the light of the whole record, one or more of the following: <br /> <br />a. Substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revisions <br />of the previous EIR due to the involvement of new significant environmental <br />effects or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant <br />effects; <br /> <br />b. Substantial changes occur with respect to the circumstances under which the <br />project is undertaken which will require major revisions of the previous EIR due <br />to the involvement of new significant environmental effects or a substantial <br />increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects; or <br /> <br />c. New information of substantial importance, which was not known and could not <br />have been known with the exercise of reasonable diligence at the time the <br />previous EIR was certified as complete, shows any of the following: <br /> <br />i. The project will have one or more significant effects not discussed in the <br />previous EIR; <br /> <br />ii. Significant effects previously examined will be substantially more severe <br />than shown in the previous EIR; <br /> <br />iii. Mitigation measures or alternatives previously found not to be feasible <br />would in fact be feasible and would substantially reduce one or more <br />significant effects of the project, but the project proponents decline to <br />adopt the mitigation measure or alternative; or <br /> <br />iv. Mitigation measures or alternatives which are considerably different from <br />those analyzed in the previous EIR would substantially reduce one or more <br />significant effects on the environment, but the project proponents decline <br />to adopt the mitigation measure or alternative. <br /> <br />3. As the Project is within the allowable residential land use and density in the General <br />Plan and analyzed in the PEIR, an Addendum to PEIR was prepared pursuant to Section
