Notice of preparation
The notice of preparation is an initial step to inform members of the public that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is going to be prepared.
The notice of preparation and the scope of the environmental impact report were the subject of a scoping session and study session, held as part of the January 14, 2019, Planning Commission meeting. The following comment letters were received during the comment period:
An initial study and notice of preparation were prepared for the project in December 2018, and a 45-day comment period ran from December 10, 2018, to January 24, 2019.
Based on the initial study findings, a focused environmental impact report was prepared for topics that require further analysis, including air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, noise, population and housing, transportation and traffic and utilities.
As a result of the 2017 settlement agreement between the City of Menlo Park and the City of East Palo Alto, housing and transportation were required to be analyzed.
All environmental documents associated with the project are available for review.
