   WHEREAS, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act, the Planning and Environmental Services Manager provided public notice of the intent of the City to adopt a negative declaration for this project, and the City Council has considered the proposed negative declaration, together with any comments received during the public review process, finds on the basis of the whole record before it (including the initial study and any comments received) that there is no substantial evidence that the project will have a significant effect on the environment, further finds that the negative declaration reflects the independent judgment of the City, and adopts the negative declaration; and
   WHEREAS, the documents and other material that constitute the record of proceedings upon which the decision to adopt the negative declaration are based is located in the Planning and Environmental Services Division of the Development Services Department, and the custodian of the record is the Planning and Environmental Services Manager; and
