Draft WSoMa EIR is finally out

The Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Western SoMa Community Plan concludes:

“In general, it is anticipated that future development under revised zoning controls would result in more cohesive neighborhoods throughout the Project Area. New development within the Draft Plan Area, specifically, would exhibit greater consistency in land use and building types, and would include more clearly defined residential neighborhoods, commercial corridors, and high-tech/light industrial/PDR areas.”

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared by the San Francisco Planning Department for the Western SoMa Community Plan, Rezoning of Adjacent Parcels and 350 Eighth Street Project. The report is available for public review and comment on the Planning Department’s Negative Declarations & EIRs webpage (http://tinyurl.com/sfceqadocs). CDs and paper copies are also available at the Planning Information Center at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor.

A public hearing on this Draft EIR has been scheduled by the City Planning Commission for July 26, 2012, in Room 400, City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, beginning at noon or later. Public comments will be accepted from June 20, 2012, to 5:00 p.m. on August 6, 2012.

Written comments should be addressed to Bill Wycko, Environmental Review Officer, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94103, bill.wycko@sfgov.org. Comments received at the public hearing and in writing will be responded to in a Comments and Responses document.
