This
comment
provides
an
introduction
to
the
overall
comment
letter.
As
part
of
the
preparation
of
the
Final
EIR,
City
staff,
the
City
Attorney,
and
the
City’s
special
counsel
have
reviewed
all
proposed
responses
to
comments.

See
Master Response
1
for
a
discussion
of
the
use
of
Program
EIRs.
See
also
Master Response
1
for
a
discussion
of
CEQA’s
requirements
for
environmental
reviews
of
subsequent
site-specific
development
projects,
and
how
those
CEQA
requirements
apply
to
the
Baylands.
As
discussed
in
Master Response
1,
CEQA
requires
that
EIRs,
including
Program
EIRs
provide
all
feasible
mitigation
for
the
project-
or
program-related
impacts
that
will
result
from
the
proposed
project
or
program.
The
Brisbane
Baylands
EIR
accomplishes
this
objective
by
providing
mitigation
measures
for
all
significant
impacts
identified
in
the
EIR.
These
Mitigation
Measures,
along
the
specific
means
for
their
implementation,
are
set
forth
in
Chapter
4.0,
Mitigation
Monitoring
and
Reporting
Program
,
of
this
Final
EIR.
As
also
discussed
in
Master Response
1,
CEQA
requires
that
all
proposed
subsequent
discretionary
actions
for
which
an
EIR
be
prepared
undergo
further
environmental
review.
See
Master Response
1
for
a
discussion
of
CEQA
requirements
for
the
review
of
subsequent
discretionary
actions
and
site-specific
development
projects
within
the
Baylands.

[See page

This
comment
incorrectly
asserts
that
identification
of
the
Baylands
EIR
as
a
Program
EIR
is
“based
on
the
assumed
ability
of
the
Draft
EIR
to
assess
future
impacts
based
on
the
current
level
of
analysis.”
Future
site-specific
discretionary
actions
will
each
be
required
to
undergo
environmental
review
under
CEQA.
As
discussed
in
Chapter
1,
Introduction
,
and
Chapter
3,
Project
Description
,
of
the
Draft
EIR
and
detailed
in
Master Response
1,
the
Brisbane
Baylands
EIR
has
been
identified
as
a
Program
EIR
because
it
meets
the
definition
set
forth
in
CEQA
for
a
Program
EIR.

The
comment
describes
existing
planning
requirements
for
the
Baylands,
and
does
not
raise
any
significant
environmental
issues.
No
further
response
is
required.

See
Master Response
1
for
a
discussion
of
environmental
review
of
subsequent
discretionary
actions
involving
the
Baylands.
As
discussed
in
that
Master
Response,
pursuant
to
the
requirements
of
CEQA,
all
subsequent
discretionary
actions
will
require
additional
