An EIS can analyze probable impacts on both the natural environment and nearby communities, including how the project could affect air quality, plant and animal habitat, transportation, and cultural resources. Multiple alternatives can be studied in an EIS.
After public input is considered, we finalize the scope of the EIS and then prepare a draft study that will be available for public review and comment.
The final study is an impartial, comprehensive document used as resource for future decision-makers and the public to evaluate the company’s permit applications.
Note: The timeline below is an early representation of the original schedule. In July of 2019, this process was put on hold until further notice following a request from PacWest Silicon.
