Environmental Impact Report

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR No. 07-02) was released for public review on September 17, 2007.  The 5-acre project site is located within the 356-acre Huntington Central Park and generally located southwest of the intersection of Goldenwest Street and Talbert Avenue.  The Draft EIR analyzes the potential environmental effects associated with the construction and operation of a new one-story senior center (approximately 45,000 square feet) on an undeveloped portion of Central Park.

The Draft EIR begins its mandatory 45-day public comment period on September 17, 2007.  The comment period closes on October 31.  A Notice of Availability of the Draft EIR has been mailed to all property owners and tenants within 1,000 feet of the site and to other interested parties.  A public comment meeting will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2007 at 6:00 P.M. in Room C/D of the Huntington Central Library.
