About the Revised EIR

The Revised EIR evaluates the following environmental issues in detail: Air Quality, Energy, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Noise, Transportation and Circulation, and Wildfire. Based on the analysis in the Draft Revised EIR, the Landscape Plan would have significant and unavoidable impacts related to traffic conditions at the intersection of Bay Road and Ringwood Avenue, as well as increased exposure to traffic noise. Other impacts studied in the Draft Revised EIR would be less than significant. Other environmental issues including Aesthetics, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, Hydrology and Water Quality, and Tribal Cultural Resources were adequately evaluated in the original Draft EIR published in September 2017 (as modified by the Final EIR posted on the County’s website in May 2018). These topics were not revisited in the Draft Revised EIR.

Similar to the original EIR, the Draft EIR analyzes the following three alternatives to the proposed Landscape Plan: 1) No Project, 2) Reduced Athletic Programming, and 3) Multi-Use Field. Among the park redevelopment options, Alternative 2 (Reduced Athletic Programming) is identified as the environmentally superior alternative.
