Notice is hereby given that the Stanislaus Council of Governments (StanCOG) will be the lead agency for the preparation of a Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for StanCOG’s 2018 Regional Transportation Plan (“RTP”) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (”SCS”). The attached Notice of Preparation provides details of the project and upcoming opportunities for public comment. The 2018 RTP/SCS is an update to the StanCOG RTP/SCS that was previously adopted in June 2014. Pursuant to section 15082 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), StanCOG is soliciting views from your agency as to the scope and content of the environmental information which is germane to your agency’s statutory responsibilities in connection with the proposed project. StanCOG will also accept written comments concerning the scope and content of the EIR from interested persons of the general public and organizations concerned with the project.
StanCOG hosted an EIR Scoping Meeting. The purpose of the Scoping meeting was to solicit input on the scope and content of the environmental analysis that will be included in the Draft EIR.
