The Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR)
Fresno COG has prepared a Program Environmental Impact Report (Program EIR), in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (2014 RTP/SCS). Both the Final and Draft PEIR documents can be viewed in their entirety by clicking the corresponding links above. The 2014 RTP identifies the region’s transportation needs and issues, sets forth an action plan of projects and programs to address the needs consistent with the adopted policies, and documents the financial resources needed to implement the plan. Additional areas of emphasis in the 2014 RTP include an Environmental Justice Report and a Sustainable Communities Strategy. In addition, the 2014 RTP includes updated project lists and performance measures. Projects are identified at a conceptual level for purposes of the RTP, and this Draft Program EIR is programmatic in nature – meaning it does not specifically analyze individual projects.
The Program EIR finds that implementation of the 2014 RTP/SCS could result in significant and unavoidable impacts to the following issues areas: Aesthetics; Agricultural Resources; Air Quality; Biotic Resources; Climate Change; Cultural Resources; Energy and Energy Consumption; Geology and Soils; Hazardous Materials; Hydrology and Water Quality; Land Use and Planning; Noise; Population and Housing; Public Utilities, Other Utilities, and Service Systems; and Transportation/Traffic.
