If the Lead Agency finds that the project may have a significant impact on the environment and that there are no obvious measures the applicant can take to mitigate potential problems, an EIR will be required. An EIR may also be required if further study is needed to provide information necessary in determining whether or not the project could have a significant impact.
Case Number LU10-0003
Pacific Rock, Inc., Applicant
NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF A PARTIAL RECIRCULATED DRAFT EIR - Document
PUBLIC REVIEW DOCUMENTS: Partial Recirculated Draft EIR
Project Description: The applicant requests a modification to existing Conditional Use Permit (CUP) No. 3817-3 to amend the current reclamation plan and to allow for the expansion of the existing mining area, to extend the life of the permit for an additional 30-year period, extend the operational days from 6 to 7 days per week. allow construction and mobile mining equipment in outdoor storage areas, operate a concrete and asphalt recycling plant, allow for imported material to be used in reclamation fill and to replace an existing mobile home to be used as a 24-hour security trailer.
Background: The Ventura County Resource Management Agency, Planning Division prepared and circulated for public review between December 1, 2020, and January 15, 2021, a Draft Environmental Impact Report (2020 Draft EIR) for the Project. In accordance with Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 21092.1 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15088.5, Ventura County is recirculating the biological resources section of the 2020 Draft EIR that has been revised in response to comments received addressing biological resources and to incorporate additional analysis and information regarding biological resources.
Ventura County requests that commenters limit their new written comments to the revisions and new material presented in the Partial Recirculated Draft EIR, which consists of the revised version of Section 3.5, “Biological Resources,” and its new Appendix C-3, “Bat Habitat Assessment for the Pacific Rock Quarry Expansion Project.” Comments received previously on the 2020 Draft EIR Section 3.5, “Biological Resources,” will not be responded to in the Final EIR; Ventura County will only respond to comments for this section received after recirculation of this Partial Recirculated Draft EIR. Comments on other sections of the 2020 Draft EIR need not be resubmitted as they will be responded to in the Final EIR that will be prepared after public review of this Partial Recirculated Draft EIR. Ventura County thus requests that comments addressing issues other than biological resources not be resubmitted. For reference and comparison, Ventura County is providing a link to the 2020 Draft EIR and all comments received on that draft here.
