The San Francisco Planning Department has published the Responses to Comments document for the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Ocean Beach Climate Change Adaptation Project on the San Francisco Planning Department’s website at sfplanning.org/sfceqadocs. This document, along with the Draft EIR, will be before the planning commission for Final EIR certification on September 28. 2023. The planning commission will receive public testimony on the Final EIR certification at the September 28thth hearing. Please note that the public review period for the draft EIR ended on January 24, 2022; any comments received after that date, including any comments provided orally or in writing at the final EIR certification hearing, may not be responded to in writing. The agenda for the September 28, 2023 planning commission hearing showing the start time and order of items at the hearing will be available at sfplanning.org/hearings-cpc-grid by close of business on Thursday, September 28, 2023.
The purpose of the September 28, 2023 planning commission hearing is for the commission to certify if the final EIR is adequate, accurate and objective, reflecting the independent judgement and analysis of the commission.
The planning commission does not conduct a hearing to receive comments on the responses to comments document, and no such hearing is required by the California Environmental Quality Act. Interested parties, however, may always write to commission members or to the president of the commission at firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or 49 South Van Ness Avenue and express an opinion on the responses to comments document, or the commission’s decision to certify the completion of the Final EIR for this project.
This Responses to Comments document, together with the draft EIR, constitutes the final EIR. The draft EIR may be downloaded at sfplanning.org/sfceqadocs. If you have any questions concerning the Responses to Comments document or the environmental review process, please contact Julie Moore at CPC.OceanBeachEIR@sfgov.org or at 628.652.7566.
