What the heck is an EIR besides a huge and complicated document? And why should we as advocates care? Doesn’t the EIR address the sustainability issues that we advocates are concerned with?
The answer is, sort of. And maybe but not always. And YES DEFINITELY, if you know how to review and comment on it! Come learn how to read, analyze, and comment on a project EIR. This document is one of the most complicated but important ways to influence a project of any size, from an individual development to an entire general plan. Greenbelt Alliance’s team of policy experts will lead you through the process of commenting on an EIR by reviewing the Mountain View General Plan’s EIR. You’ll come out of this workshop writing like a lawyer and feeling like a sustainability champ.
