The City of Carson (City) is preparing an update of its General Plan (the Project) which will establish the City’s overall approach to development, transportation, environmental quality, and other key topics through 2040. In addition to the state-required elements, the General Plan will address community design, sustainability, public health, and environmental justice.
The City has determined that a comprehensive Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be necessary. In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA; California Public Resources Code, Section 21000 et seq.), and Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR; hereafter CEQA Guidelines, 14 CCR 15000 et seq.), the City of Carson will be the lead agency and will prepare the EIR for the General Plan. The City has prepared a recirculated Notice of Preparation (NOP) in accordance with CEQA Guidelines Sections 15082(a) and 15375.
A Recirculated NOP was sent out for the Project on November 8, 2017. Since that time, the City of Carson has expanded the scope for the City of Carson General Plan Update, which will now include the Housing Element Update and a new Environmental Justice Element. Therefore, the City is recirculating the Notice of Preparation and will be hosting a new Scoping Meeting to consider potential environmental impacts.
This webinar acts as the Scoping Meeting to discuss the Program EIR of the Carson General Plan Update and is open to the general public to attend. Verbal comments regarding the scope of the proposed Program EIR will be accepted at the meeting. Written comments can be submitted to Alvie Betancourt, City of Carson Planning Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org before the close of the NOP public comment period.
