A Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (Recirculated Draft EIR) was made available for public review/comment between July 23, 2013, and September 13, 2013 (see below for links to download that complete document). Upon close of that public comment period and review of the letters received, the City, as lead agency, determined that additional information would need to be added to the Draft EIR in order to ensure that the environmental analysis is complete and comprehensive. To accomplish this, it was determined that a second recirculation of the DEIR would be required.
February 18, 2014, Letter from the City Manager
Following this determination and delivery of the February 18, 2014, letter (provided above), the applicant placed their application on hold.
2nd Recirculated Draft EIR:
In early 2015, the applicant notified the City of its plans to reactivate the project proposal and include a modification to the project description in order to exclude any rail activity associated with the project. Upon review of the new 2015 proposal, staff has determined that a second recirculation of the Draft EIR would still be required for this modified proposal.
A Notice of Preparation (NOP) of a Second Recirculated Draft EIR was released on July 1, 2015 for a 30-day public review and a public scoping session to accept verbal comments on the NOP was held on July 22, 2015.
NOP Comment Period Extended: In response to comments received during the public scoping session, staff has extended the public comment period on the NOP by one additional week. Staff now requests all comments on the NOP be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Friday August 7, 2015.
