The project now consists of 73 hotel rooms. As part of the December City Council approval, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed that set performance dates for moving the project forward. The applicant has met all milestones to date including resubmitting building architectural designs to the City by April 30, 2023 and resubmitting building plans by June 24, 2023. Construction has reactivated on the site as of August 28, 2023 in conformance with the MOU.

Project Plans and Specifications
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.
