The proposed Consultant Contract subject scope is incomplete, dealing <br />only with limited EIR impacts of the proposed Revised Athletic Field submitted <br />January 25, 2013 - most of those issues have previously been addressed in the <br />2010 EIR & CUP Resolutions. (Herewith) <br />2.) The College (October 29, 2012) is proposing a much more significant <br />Re -Phasing (Handout page 3) of all of their CUP approved expansion <br />entitlements, and this is a subject worthy of a far more in-depth EIR study. In a <br />letter to the City of February 27, 2013, College Counsel stated (page 3) that <br />although this Re -Phasing was temporarily withdrawn in the re -submittal of <br />January 25, 2013, it will be BAAAACK! That admits to "Piecemealing", a <br />prohibited CEQA practice. <br />3.) In an article (Handout page 5) in the PV News, and again today in the Daily <br />Breeze, page 3, the College announced a significant functional change and <br />a doubling of enrollments within the past three years. Therefore, as City <br />Attorney previously stated; "Clearly this is a significant change that does <br />need to be addressed." Those sentiments are also imbedded in the Councils' <br />2010-41 & -42 EIR and CUP Resolutions on pages 5 & 4 respectively (Handout, <br />pages 7 & 8). A new EIR and CUP are totally justified. <br />Jim Gordon <br />Footnote: A "continuance" is not a denial of any current "right" the <br /> 4/16/2013 <br />
