Get Involved in the Environmental Planning Process

Get Involved in the Environmental Planning Process

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

MTC and ABAG need your help as we begin work on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for Plan Bay Area. The EIR is a legally required document that will assess the environmental impacts of the proposed land-use changes and transportation investments in the long-range plan. What environmental issues should be analyzed? Are there alternatives that should be evaluated? What about mitigation measures that could help avoid or minimize any negative impacts? How can local jurisdictions and other agencies use this EIR for their own planning efforts? Finally, what are you own ideas about what we ought to consider?

Even if you were unable to attend one of our five public meetings on the EIR, there’s still time to send a fax or email before the comment deadline on July 11.
