The city will hold a formal scoping meeting for the Hunter project’s environmental impact report (EIR) at 6 p.m. Monday, March 12, at the firehouse.

The meeting will allow the public to speak directly to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) consultants regarding the scope of the new EIR.

Comments may also be submitted by April 9 to Planning Director Noah Housh at City Hall or emailed to

The project proposes at least 87 housing units beyond the eastern end of Adams Street and behind the levee.

After the initial analysis is completed, a draft EIR will be published for a 45-day public review and comment period, during which the public will have an additional opportunity to comment on the environmental analysis and resulting document. This is tentatively scheduled to occur in late spring or early summer.

These comments will then be used to finalize the document, making modifications or expanding the analysis as appropriate. A response to each comment will be provided in the final EIR for the project, which will then be taken before the Planning Commission for review and action at a public hearing tentatively scheduled for late summer or early fall.
