The Alameda Planning Board held a public hearing for the Encinal Terminals draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Monday, March 27.
The purpose of the public hearing was to allow Alameda residents to express their opinions about the project with Alameda officials. The draft EIR was completed on Feb. 9. The report was then under a 45-day public comment period, which concluded yesterday.
Public comments were mostly in favor of the project. However, some residents were concerned about its potential to add traffic. The project proposes 589 new housing units.
There’s been a lot of news lately about the draft Alameda Point environmental impact report (EIR), especially its chapter on traffic. There hasn’t been a lot of news about the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Navy’s jointly issued final environmental assessment for Alameda Point and their traffic impact report for the planned military cemetery, columbarium, and outpatient medical clinic at Alameda Point.
