A Notice of Preparation (NOP) of an environmental impact report was distributed for a 30 day agency and public review period, along with an Initial Study, on February 17, 2016. The Initial Study concluded that the proposed project may have significant environmental impacts and that the District would prepare an Environmental Impact Report to address these impacts. The District held an Environmental Impact Report Scoping Meeting on March 3, 2016, at the SMART Center, 789 East Poplar, San Mateo, CA 94401. No members of the public attended the Scoping Meeting.
The District received five letters in response to the Notice of Preparation. Issues brought up in the scoping comment letters did not identify additional issue areas requiring Environmental Impact Report analysis beyond those previously identified in the Initial Study. However, additional information was added to the Initial Study to address some issues discussed. Please see Section 1.1 of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (link below).
