The University of California, Davis, has released the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report, or EIR, for the Sacramento campus Long Range Development Plan, or LRDP, for public review and comment. The draft EIR evaluates overall growth at the regional, 150-acre health care campus near Broadway and Stockton Boulevard, including details for Phase 1 of Aggie Square, the university’s planned innovation hub.

This draft is a supplement to the LRDP EIR certified in 2010 for the Sacramento campus. The public review period for the Draft Supplemental EIR starts today (July 31) and ends on Wednesday, Sept. 16. Comments regarding the Draft Supplemental EIR may be submitted in writing via mail or email. The available documents and details for commenting are available online.

Written comments regarding the content of the Draft Supplemental EIR should be submitted no later than 5 p.m. Sept. 16. UC Davis will also conduct a virtual public hearing during the public comment period. The hearing objective is to provide a verbal comment opportunity for the public on the environmental impact details of the proposed project. The public hearing will begin at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3. The public can register to attend the hearing, obtain additional commenting details, and get full access to the LRDP and the EIR on the LRDP website.
