Project Approvals

Disposition and Development Agreement

On February 24, 2020, the long-awaited Shoreline Development Project took an important step forward as the City Council adopted a Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA), which provides a framework for how the development may proceed going forward. The DDA includes a Purchase and Sale Agreement and Leases with Cal Coast Companies LLC Inc. to facilitate the future development of the Shoreline area.

EIR Addendum

Pursuant to CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines, the City of San Leandro completed an Addendum to the San Leandro Shoreline Development Project Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in January 2020. The Addendum includes an environmental analysis checklist, based on Appendix G of the CEQA Guidelines, which analyzed the changes to the Shoreline Development Project and whether the environmental effects from the proposed project would be any different from those disclosed in the Certified EIR. The Addendum concluded that the proposed project would not result in any new significant impacts or substantially increase the severity of any significant impacts identified in the Certified EIR. No new information of substantial importance was identified and no new mitigation measures would be necessary to reduce significant impacts.

Environmental Impact Report (EIR)

On July 20, 2015, the City Council adopted a resolution certifying the Environmental Impact Report for the Shoreline Development Project along with the required findings and reports (Mitigation Findings, Findings Concerning Alternatives, Statement of Overriding Considerations and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program). The Council also adopted resolutions to amend the General Plan Land Use Designation and rezone a portion of the site.
