There will be a public meeting to discuss the scope of the Balboa Reservoir project’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR)–which will consider what possibilities and configurations of the project, and its streets, buildings, and infrastructure, will be studied for their environmental impacts. This will be an opportunity to learn more about and comment on the proposed EIR scope of work.

Here is the Notice of Preparation from the Planning Dept, which describes the scope of the project to be studied for environmental impacts.

When: October 30th (Tuesday), 6-8pm.

Where: Lick Wilmerding High School cafeteria (755 Ocean Avenue). [Transit: Balboa Park BART; 8-Bayshore, 29-Sunset, 43-Masonic, 49-VanNess, K-Ingleside, 54-Felton.]

From SF Planning:

The notice of preparation (NOP) document, which includes details on what the EIR will analyze, is available for public review and can be accessed on the Planning Department’s website at: http://sf-planning.org/sfceqadocs. Paper copies are also available at the Planning Information Center counter at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor, San Francisco. Materials are also available for review by appointment at the Planning Department’s office on the fourth floor of 1650 Mission Street. (Contact Jeanie Poling at (415) 575-9072 or jeanie.poling@sfgov.org.)

Members of the public can provide feedback on the EIR scope in three ways:

  • At a “public scoping” meeting on October 30, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. in the Lick Wilmerding High School Cafeteria (Ann Maisel Café) at 755 Ocean Avenue, San Francisco.
  • Written comments will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on November 12, 2018. Written comments can be mailed to Jeanie Poling, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94103
  • Written comments will also be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on November 12, 2018 if emailed to jeanie.poling@sfgov.org.

Members of the public are not required to provide personal identifying information when they communicate with the Planning Commission or the Department. All written or oral communications, including submitted personal contact information, may be made available to the public for inspection and copying upon request and may appear on the Department’s website or in other public documents.

The purpose of the EIR is to provide information about potential significant physical environmental effects of the proposed project, to identify possible ways to minimize the significant effects, and to describe and analyze possible alternatives to the proposed project. The preparation of an NOP and the EIR does not indicate a decision by the City to approve or to disapprove the project. In fact, prior to making any such approval decision, the decision makers must review and consider the information contained in the EIR.
