How to comment on an EIR

As part of the comment process for the Environmental Impact Report on the Western SoMa Community Plan, a public hearing has been scheduled by the Planning Commission for July 26, 2012, in Room 400, City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, beginning at noon or later.

Comments are supposed to be confined to the environmental impacts of the Plan on cultural resources, transportation and circulation, air quality, and shadow as well as cumulative noise impacts. “Cultural resources” refers to “historic‐period resources of the built environment, historic‐period and prehistoric archeological resources, paleontological resources, and human remains.”

This brief video offers some useful guidance if you’d like to comment on the EIR.

Public comments will be accepted from until 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.

Jim Meko, chair
SoMa Leadership Council
