The Town convened an Advisory Design Panel (ADP) meeting to review the project as part of the Major Design Review application process. ADP comments will be documented and revisions to the project may be made to improve consistency with the North Village Design Guidelines.

Environmental Review, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)

A CEQA Addendum is being prepared for the proposed project because the Town has determined, in its role as the Lead Agency under CEQA, that the proposed geothermal component of the project must be evaluated to ensure that the project will remain in conformance with the previously certified 1999 North Village Specific Plan Subsequent Program Environmental Impact Report (1999 SPEIR), and the 2017 Addendum to the 1999 SPEIR, for the Mammoth Hillside site.
