The Granada Hotel/Hotel MoHi is a request for a Zoning Amendment and a Planned Development Master Plan to amend the zoning from MU-D (Mixed-Use Downtown) to MU-D (Mixed-Use Downtown) and PD (Planned Development Combining District). A Design permit amendment is also proposed.
The applicant proposes to add a partial fifth floor to the hotel currently under construction. The Downtown Specific Plan requires a Planned Development (PD) for development standards that deviate from those in the Plan. Height increases fall under this requirement.
The property, identified by Assessor Parcel Number 726-14-074, is located east of Monterey Road between 1st Street and 2nd Street.

Project Plans and Specifications
GRANADA HOTEL/ HOTEL MOHI
An Initial Study and Addendum to the Downtown Specific Plan Master Environmental Impact Report was prepared.
The City of Morgan Hill Development Services Department has reviewed the proposed project and determined that pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15179, no substantial changes have occurred with respect to the circumstances under which the Master Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was certified, and there is no new available information, which was not known and could not have been known at the time that the MEIR was certified. The project, as identified in this Addendum, would not have a significant effect on the environment beyond that which was evaluated in the Downtown Specific Plan Master Environmental Impact Report (MEIR). This document demonstrates that neither a subsequent EIR, nor a supplement to the MEIR is required given that the proposed modifications to the approved project would not trigger the applicable criteria set forth in the CEQA Guidelines Section 15162.
