Will the County extend the 30-day review and comment period?

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.

Draft San Antonio Heights Community Plan

San Antonio Heights

In 2016, the community embarked on a planning process to develop a new Community Plan. Two public workshops, open to any community resident, or business, or property owner, addressed strengths and weaknesses of the community, the community’s values, and what the community aspires to be in the future. Plan participants brainstormed areas of focus and actions to help the community move forward to achieve its aspirations.

The results are presented as the Public Review Draft Community Plan, available in PDF format. The final format of the Community Plan will be web-based. The PDF version of the Draft Community Plan is provided as a courtesy for simplifying public review, but may not be available once the online version of the plan is finalized.
