The County of San Mateo is preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the North Fair Oaks Rezoning and General Plan Amendment Project (“project”), as identified in the attached NOP, and is requesting comments on the scope and content of the Draft EIR. The Draft EIR will address the potential physical and environmental effects of the project for each of the environmental topics outlined in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The County of San Mateo is the Lead Agency for the project. This notice is being sent to the California State Clearinghouse, San Mateo County Clerk, adjacent cities, potential responsible agencies, and other interested parties. Responsible agencies are those public agencies, in addition to the County of San Mateo, that may have a role in approving or carrying out the project. When the Draft EIR is published, a Notice of Availability of a Draft EIR will be sent to Responsible Agencies, other public agencies, and interested parties and individuals who have indicated that they would like to review the Draft EIR.
Responses to this NOP and any questions or comments should be directed in writing to:
Will Gibson, Planner III
Planning & Building Department
455 County Center
Redwood City, CA 94063
Comments on the NOP must be received on or before May 25, 2022. In addition, comments may be provided at the EIR Scoping Meeting (see below). Comments should focus on possible impacts on the physical environment, ways in which potential adverse effects might be minimized, and alternatives to the proposed project.
EIR Public Scoping Meeting
The County of San Mateo Planning Commission will conduct a public scoping session when it meets on May 11, 2022, starting at 9:00 am. This meeting will be held virtually on Zoom. For meeting agenda and updates, including the Zoom link for the meeting, visit the Planning Commission webpage.
