The Notice of Preparation (NOP) is an initial step to inform members of the public that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is going to be prepared.
The NOP and the scope of the EIR 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 NOP comment period:
An initial study was prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the project and determine what level of additional environmental review is appropriate. Based on the initial study, a focused EIR will be prepared for impacts that need further discussion and/or mitigation beyond that provided in the ConnectMenlo Program EIR.
