​Project Status

The Notice of Preparation (NOP) was issued on August 5, 2013 and the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) was published on September 16, 2019 for a 45-day public review period ending on October 31, 2019. The County Planning Commission held a public hearing on the DEIR on October 28, 2019. CPAC meetings were held in October and November 2019. After the end of the DEIR public review period, the Applicant requested preparation of a Recirculated DEIR to address public comments, clarify and expand upon the analysis in the DEIR, and reflect the updated regulatory context. The Recirculated DEIR was published on May 14, 2021, and includes new and revised appendices as noted below under Project Documents. The County is accepting public comments on the Recirculated DEIR through June 28, 2021. The County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the Recirculated DEIR toward the end of the public comment period.
