Environmental Consideration of Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan

How do you know if the plan is okay?

Piedmonters should take a look at the Draft Piedmont Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan to find out if changes are suggested for their neighborhood or public facilities.  Will your street be changed?

After numerous meetings, Piedmont’s Draft Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan will be considered for environmental review with a goal of meeting California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) qualifications.

Piedmont Planning Commission Meeting

Monday, September 8 – 5:00 p.m. City Council Chambers

 CEQA consideration is the first item on the agenda.

The Draft Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan and CEQA document will be  heard at the September meeting of the City’s Planning Commission. The meeting will be held on Monday, September 8, 2014 at 5 pm in the Council Chambers in Piedmont City Hall (120 Vista Avenue). At the meeting, the City’s consultant on the plan will present the CEQA initial study and negative declaration, and the Planning Commission will provide comments on the Draft Plan and CEQA document in preparation for recommendation to the City Council for final adoption. This is a very important meeting and we encourage the public to attend to provide any comments!

The CEQA document has been posted online and is available for public review. The Final Plan and CEQA document will be presented again to the Planning Commission at their October 13 meeting, and subsequently to the City Council for official adoption by the City.
