The Environmental Impact Report, or EIR, for the section of the High Speed Rail project that goes through North Central due to be published soon–April 1 is the current date. For 45 days after that, comments from the public will be accepted. This is a pretty short timeframe to form opinions of this complex document. If you want to learn about how you can make your voice heard, the following may interest you.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
CARRD has just put together a page on our website which describes in detail how to write an effective EIR comment under CEQA.
On the site there is also a Quick Guide that can be downloaded and distributed to neighborhoods and friends.
As you all know, providing public comment is crucial during this very important period. We will also be putting a quick-guide together with all the relevant information necessary for those focused on the Bay Area to Central Valley Program EIR. We will send out a notification when that is available.
In addition, we are in the process of gathering resources that interested people can use to find factual data about issues such as Noise, Vibration, Water, etc. If you have any thoughts or suggestions as to sites that might have relevant information – please make sure to let us know.
Also, if you have any comments, corrections or suggestions for any other part of our website, please feel free to let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
