Saratoga City welcomes comments from its citizens on the SRC Expansion Proposal. You can make comments on the proposal in general, and send comments to the various committees and Commissions that will be considering it.

The City recommends that your create a Profile to identify yourself. This makes commenting easier and enables you to track the progress of your comments. However, you can submit your comments individually without creating a Profile. You can create a Profile here.

The proposal will pass through a number of stages, and commenting is welcomed at each stage.The full list of milestones and the latest information on the proposal's progress can be found by scrolling down to the section headed Process and Timeline on the City's web page on the SRC Expansion project.

Environmental Impact Report

The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is a key document that will be considered by the Planning Commission. A comprehensive and wide ranging environmental impact review of the proposal will be carried out by an external consultant. There will be several opportunities to comment.

The first opportunity to comment was during the Preparation Scoping Period, which was set for November 22nd to December 22nd. The Preparation Scoping Period is held at the start of the EIR review process. All the key environmental aspects to be considered will be identified during this period. There was a Public Scoping Meeting on December 9, at which numerous concerns with the PRS proposal were raised. Thank you to all who commented during the meeting. Here is a video recording of the meeting:

A group of 18 residents plus external contributions  submitted a Consolidated Response to the Notice of Preparation of the Environmental Impact Report.

At the completion of his work, the consultant will submit a draft EIR to the City. This will be published and there will be a 45 day Draft EIR review period. There will be opportunities to comment on the draft together with review meetings. The dates of these meetings are yet to be published. Please be prepared to attend the EIR review meetings and to participate with your comments.

The final EIR will be submitted to the Planning Commission, which will have a public meeting at which it will consider the EIR and decide its recommendation to the City Council. The date of this meeting has not yet been published by the City. Click or tap here to send a comment to the Planning Commission for consideration at this meeting.
