Notice of Preparation for Long Range Transportation Plan EIR

A Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan – Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP-SCS), which will also serve as the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the 2040 Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), is now available. The 2040 MTP-SCS EIR presents a region-wide assessment of potential impacts on the physical environment and identifies strategies to avoid or mitigate significant environmental effects. The NOP is the first step in development of the EIR. The purpose of the NOP is to obtain early comments on the proposed project, alternatives, and potential environmental impacts. Comments will be received beginning December 21, 2015 and ending January 29, 2016. Please submit comments to Heather Adamson at AMBAG, 445 Reservation Road, Suite G, Marina, CA 93933 or to hadamson@ambag.org. AMBAG will also be soliciting input on content of the environmental information to be addressed in the draft EIR at a public scoping meeting scheduled in Santa Cruz County on January 27, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Aptos Library, 7695 Soquel Drive, Aptos, CA. Projects included in the RTP will undergo a separate environmental review process, conducted by their agency sponsors, once they actually receive funding and are ready to proceed.
