I also want to thank Staff for their time and patience with this matter. As you know, there <br />has been much prior correspondence on this project, and with that in mind, I would like to briefly <br />summarize and provide some additional thoughts on the following main points: <br />l) The revised Subdivision design is still not compatible with adjacent uses; <br />2} The same Subdivision Map Act Findings apply to this incarnation of the project, and <br />3) The project has been segmented and the CEQA documentation is not adequate. <br />1 would like to hereby incorporate by reference, the comments that I and my neighbors have <br />made in prior correspondence and testimony on this project. <br />1. Revised Subdivision Still Not Compatible with Adjacent Uses <br />There has been much testimony at the prior hearings regazding the fact that the 15928 Union <br />Avenue pazcel mirrors the original pazcels immediately to the north, and that the proposed three- <br />lot Subdivision is not compatible with the adjacent uses which make up the true "neighborhood" <br />for this site. Although the "flag lot" line from the prior Subdivision has been redrawn slightly, <br />the "new" Subdivision layout is still very similar to the grior incamation, and for the same <br />reasons outlined previously, the intensity of the proposed development it is not compatible with <br />the neighborhood. <br />2. Subdivision Map Act Findings <br />The applicant has indicated that the Town cannot make any of the negative findings in the <br />Subdivision Map Ack, and therefore, cannot deny the proposed Subdivision. This is simply not <br />true. Section 66474 (Chapter 4. Requirements, Article 1. General) of the Subdivision Map Act <br />specifically states that: <br />ffiIBIT 18 <br />
