What the heck is an environmental impact report (EIR) besides a huge and complicated document? And why should advocates care about it? Does the EIR even address the issues that advocates are concerned about?
The answer is, sort of. And maybe, but not always. And YES, DEFINITELY, if you know how to review and comment on it!
Come learn how to read, analyze, and comment on a project EIR. This document is one of the most complicated -- but important -- ways to influence a project of any size, from an individual development to an entire general plan. Greenbelt Alliance’s policy experts Amanda Bornstein and Adam Garcia will lead you through the process of commenting on an EIR by reviewing the Mountain View General Plan’s EIR.
You’ll come out of this workshop writing like a lawyer and feeling like a sustainability champ.
