Memo to Planning Board from City Planner and Chief Operating Office of Alameda Point Regarding Public Hearing to Provide Comments on the Environmental Impact Report for the Alameda Point Project, September 9, 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 is also preparing a draft environmental impact report (EIR). 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 DEIR and the draft Zoning Amendment, MIP, and Conceptual Framework Options for the Town Center Plan can be found at the City's website at http://alamedaca.gov/alameda-point/current-draft-documents by the end of the day on September 3, 2013. (Printed copies will be delivered to the Planning Board on September 3, 2013.)
