Memo from City Manager to City Council Regarding Review and Comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Alameda Point Project. (Base Reuse), September 25, 2013



The City is preparing a comprehensive zoning ordinance amendment (Zoning Amendment) and associated General Plan Amendments, a Master Infrastructure Plan (MIP), and a Town Center and Waterfront Precise Plan (Town Center Plan) for Alameda Point (collectively, Alameda Point project).

As required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City has also prepared a draft environmental impact report (draft EIR), which was released for public review and comment on September 4, 2013. On January 28, 2013 and February 25, 2013, the City held two scoping sessions with the Planning Board to provide an opportunity for the public to submit comments on the scope of a draft EIR for the Alameda Point project. Written comments submitted to the City as part of the scoping process were reviewed by City staff and City's consultants (Environmental Science Associates (ESA)) as part of the preparation of the draft EIR.

The draft EIR, draft Zoning Amendment, MIP, and Conceptual Framework Options for the Town Center Plan can be found at the City's website at <>. Printed copies of the draft EIR are available for review at a number of locations around Alameda, including the City Clerk's office and the City's three libraries.
