Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Update

The city has sent updates regarding the Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). A scoping report summarizing the comments they received during the scoping phase was published this week, describing how they are considering those comments as they determine the final scope for the EIS. The scoping period began on October 2, 2017 and was scheduled to end November 1, 2017. Before its scheduled end, they received requests to extend the scoping comment period. In response, the city extended the comment period 15 days to end on November 16, 2017.

The city is now preparing the Draft EIS. After they issue the Draft EIS, there will be a public comment period and opportunities to provide verbal and written comment.
