EIR Scoping Meetings

EIR Scoping Meetings

Agencies and members of the public are invited to comment on the scope and content of the environmental impact assessment that will be conducted for Plan Bay Area 2050.

As a related action accompanying the release of the Notice of Preparation (Notice of Preparation in Spanish, Notice of Preparation in Chinese) scoping sessions provide an opportunity to further define environmental issues, feasible alternatives and potential mitigation measures that may warrant in-depth analysis in the environmental review process. Comments received during public scoping are considered in preparing the Draft EIR analyses.

Your Feedback Is Important

MTC is particularly interested your views on the following questions:

  1. Are there any alternatives you believe MTC-ABAG should evaluate?
  2. What types of mitigation measures do you think would help avoid or minimize potential environmental effects?
