SCAG to Create Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR)

Notice of Preparation calls for comments on scope and content of PEIR in terms of 2012 RTP

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is seeking input from local, state and federal agencies as well as other interested parties on issues relevant to the 2012 Regional Transportation Plan — good news for organizations who are invested in the future of walking and biking in Southern California. Earlier this month, SCAG released a formal Notice of Preparation (NOP) that outlines the intent to prepare a Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR). This report will be in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and will also include a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS).

The NOP will allow for input into the scope and content of the environmental information that will be evaluated in the PEIR regarding the 2012 RTP.

Two scoping meetings will be held at SCAG’s Main Office on Thursday, May 26. Session 1 will be held from 2-4 p.m. and Session 2 from 4-6 p.m:

SCAG Board Room*
818 West Seventh Street, 12th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90017-3435

*Videoconferencing will be available from SCAG’s regional offices in Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties (see last page of NOP for addresses).

Due to the time limits mandated by state law, your response to the NOP must be sent no later than thirty (30) days after the date of the notice (comment period ends June 8, 2011). Please send your response to Christine Fernandez, Senior Regional Planner, by visiting the SCAG website or via email (include a return address and the name of a contact person in your agency).
