The Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for the Envision San José 2040 General Plan is available for public review and comment. The circulation period for the Draft PEIR is from June 17, 2011 to August 1, 2011.
The Draft PEIR, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), identifies the potential environmental impacts for the City's proposed comprehensive update of its General Plan. The City's General Plan is a long-term plan that describes the amount, type and phasing of development needed to achieve the City's social, economic, and environmental goals and is also the policy framework for decision making on both private development projects and City capital expenditures.
The Draft PEIR may be reviewed in the City's Environmental Impact Report Library. Printed copies are available for review at City Hall (Public Information Counter on the first floor) and at the main and branch libraries.
