NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Gilroy Planning Division intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the following described project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) of 1970, as amended, and the Thresholds of Significance adopted May 3, 2004 by the City of Gilroy:

Project Number:         Z 18-04, AS 18-09, SP 21-08

Project Applicant:        Mike Conrotto

Project Location:         6460 Automall Parkway 

Assessor Parcel No.:  841-15-069 Vicinity Map

Project Description: The proposed project requests approval to construct and operate a 75-foot tall electronic billboard with a 672 square foot display area, within the Gilroy city limits. The project requires amendment of Section 30.37.30 (Prohibited Signs), Section 30.37.50 (Commercial and Industrial Districts), and Section 30.37.51 (Freeway Oriented Signs) of the Gilroy Municipal Code to allow such signage which is currently prohibited.

In accordance with Section 15070 of the California Code of Regulations, the City of Gilroy Planning Division has determined that there is no substantial evidence that the proposed project would have a significant effect on the environment, and that a mitigated negative declaration (MND) may be adopted.
