SJCOG issued a Notice of Preparation on March 10, 2017 to prepare a Program EIR in accordance with the CEQA for the 2018 RTP and SCS. A public workshop was held on March 30, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. to obtain public input regarding the scope and content of the environmental analysis to be included in the Program EIR for the 2018 RTP.
Draft Program Environmental Impact Report
Released March 13, 2018
Under the law known as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), SJCOG must prepare a "program-level" Environmental Impact Report (Program EIR) to inform residents and decision makers of the potential environmental impacts that could result from implementing the 2018 RTP/SCS. Rather than analyze individual projects or policies, the Program EIR looks at potential environmental impacts of the Plan as a whole. Individual projects are required to separately comply with CEQA and/or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as applicable.
Public comment period: March 13, 2018 to April 26, 2018. See the Notice of Availablility for more details.
** The comment period for the Draft EIR and the 2018 RTP/SCS has been extended from the original end date of 5pm on April 26, 2018 to*To view a list of corrections and additions to the Draft Program EIR since publication, please see tab below entitled, "Corrections Since Publication." . **
