Environmental Scoping Period

Between January 24 and March 11, 2019, the City is requesting input from agencies, stakeholders, and other interested parties on the scope and content of the EIR. Using the information obtained through the environmental scoping period, the City will prepare an EIR to analyze the environmental impacts of the proposed Project and alternatives. The City’s BOE welcomes comments and/or concerns related to the content of the environmental information presented and invites you to attend a public meeting at the Zoo to learn more about the proposed Project and participate in the environmental review process.

The Notice of Preparation and Initial Study/Environmental Checklist will be circulated for a forty-five (45) day public review period, beginning on January 24, 2019 and ending on March 11, 2019. You can download these materials at:
