Greenbelt Alliance Calls for Careful Study in “New Farm” Scoping Session

In May 2011, a chorus of organizations and individuals submitted comments on the scope of the yet-to-be-written Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the “Koch-Kawar New Farm Project.”

Many commenters focused on how the project would violate numerous local and state policies, including the existing voter-approved County Urban Limit Line. Others called on County officials to carefully study a litany of negative impacts from the project, from traffic and air pollution to loss of drinking water supplies and fertile agricultural land.
