The Town of Moraga is soliciting comments pertaining to the content of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for the Town’s Comprehensive Advanced Planning Initiative.
The Draft EIR identifies and discusses potential impacts resulting from implementation of the proposed Advanced Planning Initiative pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Advanced Planning Initiative includes an update to the Town’s Housing Element and corresponding rezoning of the Moraga Center Specific Plan and Rheem Park areas, rezoning of the Bollinger Canyon Study Area, and 2002 General Plan amendments to achieve internal consistency and meet recent State requirements. The purpose of the Planning Initiative is to ensure the Town has a sufficient number of appropriately zoned sites to meet its housing allocation. It is also intended to provide supportive housing goals, policies, programs, and quantitative objectives to meet the Town’s future housing needs.
