Environmental Review

The Electric Greenway has undergone environmental analysis as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). This analysis evaluates the potential for environmental impacts in numerous categories. On May 1, the city released a Notice of Intent to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Electric Greenway Project.

The Mitigated Negative Declaration will be considered by the City Council at a public hearing on June 27, 2019 at 7 PM at the City Council Chambers.  A staff report with additional information will be available the week of June 17, 2019.

Written comments on the MND may be submitted between May 1, 2019 and May 31, 2019.  Please submit any comments to Casey Kempenaar at ckempenaar@citrusheights.net.
