A Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) has been prepared for Jay Paul Company’s Moffett Place project located in Moffett Park in the area between Borregas Drive and Mathilda Avenue.

The developer is also negotiating a Development Agreement (DA) with the City (see the alternatives section of the DSEIR). The project requires a Moffett Park Specific Plan Amendment (GPA), Rezone (RZ), Major Moffett Park Design Review (MMPDR), and Environmental Review (SEIR).

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires a minimum 45 day review of a draft EIR. The 45-day review period begins on August 30, 2013 and ends on October 15, 2013. The purpose of the 45-day review period is to provide comment on the adequacy of the DSEIR. A Planning Commission hearing will be held on October 14, 2013 to take public testimony on the project. At the end of the 45 days, staff will compile all comments and work with the consultant to provide a response to comments. The response to comments and Final SEIR will be brought forward for formal public hearings with the Planning Commission and City Council.  The key dates are noted below.
