Public comments sought for San Francisquito Creek project draft environmental impact report
Posted on May 13, 2019 at 3:55 pm by Peter Ibrahim
The San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority (SFCJPA) seeks public comment on the proposed
San Francisquito Creek Flood Protection, Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project Upstream of Highway 101 draft environmental impact report (DEIR)
This is the next project for the SFCJPA and its partners – the cities of Menlo Park, East Palo Alto, Palo Alto and the Santa Clara Valley Water District and San Mateo County Flood Control District.
San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority (SFCJPA)
released the document for public review and comment April 22, 2019. Like the proposed project and the challenges it seeks to address, the DEIR document is large and complex. Readers are encouraged to start their review with the first two chapters, which provide overall context of the SFCJPA’s broad plan of connected projects, as well as substantial details regarding the program now proposed.
In addition, the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority is hosting three public hearings to share more about the project and receive comments:
