Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead A draft program EIR was published on February 5, 2016, which analyzed four planning scenarios at an equal level of detail illuminating potential environmental impacts or a range of alternatives designed to address the proposed plan objectives. In early 2016, the city council directed city staff to analyze additional scenarios to broaden the range of potential outcomes and provide additional information. This supplement to the draft EIR has been prepared to assess the two additional scenarios, scenarios 5 and 6. Scenario 5 would lower job growth below current projections and allow a modest increase in housing in an effort to improve the city's jobs to employed residents ratio. Scenario 6 would also lower job growth below current projections and allow robust increase in housing in an effort to address issues of housing affordability and supply in the city.
