Comments were made regarding the economic impacts on small businesses due to 

the competition that could result from the introduction of the project’s new retail 

and commercial space. This expressed concern is valid. In fact, within the context of 

environmental analysis (CEQA), this concept is studied as “Urban Decay.” “Urban 

Decay” refers to the following: If new development retail businesses could likely 

attract sales away from existing businesses, it must be determined whether the 

severity of this change could cause disinvestment such that significant business 

closures, abandonment or other forms of physical deterioration or “decay” will 

result, thereby resulting in an adverse impact on the physical environment.
