City Council to hear from preferred EIR Consultant

On Monday November 6, 2006 at about 7:30 pm the City Council will hear a presentation from Rajeev Bhatia of the firm Dyett and Bhatia regarding the process for the community to develop project alternatives at the Baylands. Dyett and Bhatia is the firm that will probably be recommended to City Council to conduct the alternatives development portion of the Environmental Impact Review for the Baylands Specific Plan. Prior to presenting the contract to Council for approval, the Council will hear about the process that will be used to develop project alternatives. This is one of the most extensive alternative development processes ever used. It will include in excess of 30 meetings including meetings with City Council, Planning Commission, a Community Issues and Visioning Workshop, Interviews with individual stakeholders, a Community Workshop on preliminary alternatives, Neighborhood/key group briefings, and a Community “Open House.”

Please attend Monday’s Council meeting or watch it on Channel 27 to find out more about this important process. The citizens of Brisbane have an opportunity to help shape the future of our community. Please take the time to participate.
