Will the County extend the 30-day review and comment period?
No, the County does not plan on extending the 30-day period to receive comments on the proposed scope of the EIR.

Additionally, the County and its consultants must start the technical studies as soon as possible to remain on schedule.
Will the County still accept comments beyond Nov. 20th?
Yes, the County will continue to accept comments throughout the preparation of the EIR. However, comments on the NOP and scope of the EIR that are submitted after the 30-day review period may not be formally documented in the EIR.
Will there be other opportunities to comment on the EIR?
Yes, the County anticipates releasing the draft EIR around mid-2018. The public review and comment period for the draft EIR will be a minimum of 45 days per state law.
