The public will get a critical opportunity to comment on future growth plans for the UC Berkeley campus when the University of California conducts a scoping meeting for the 2020 Long Range Development Plan and the Tien Center Environmental Impact Report Monday from 5 p.m to 9 p.m. at the Clark Kerr Campus Krutch Theater, 2601 Warring St. The session will provide an opportunity for public comment on the proposed scope of the environmental analysis.
Written comments can also be submitted with a deadline of Monday, Sept. 29 at 5:00 p.m. Comments can be e-mailed to 2020LRDP@cp.berkeley.edu or mailed to Jennifer Lawrence, Principal Planner, Environmental & Long Range Planning, Capital Projects, 1936 University Ave., Berkeley, CA, 94720.
The proposed scope of the EIR and a description of the project under consideration and a list of alternatives for environmental analysis are in the Notice of Preparation for the EIR. There is also an “Initial Study” which identifies the potential environmental impacts that will be addressed in the EIR.
