Here you will find tools to give your information and background to help you prepare your comments for the revisions. We will be adding additional material, so check back regularly for new resources and to view the public comments.
The revisions were issues July 24, initiating a forty-five day public review period. Interested members of the public as well as organizations and public agencies can provide information or critical comments about the revisions, to which the Flood Control District must respond.
The deadline for comments is September 7th, 2017.
The revised EIR will then go to the County Supervisors, who must review and certify that the Flood Control District fully complies with California environmental law. The Supervisors can also make additional changes to the project, reducing its scope, timing and devastating impacts.
Finally the program must got back to Judge James Chalfant for his final review of the projects and its compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act.
