An Environmental Impact Report was prepared pursuant to the CEQA Guidelines. A Scoping Meeting was held on December 8, 2015, at the La Habra Community Center to solicit information and comments from interested parties on what information or areas of study should be included in the initial study.
The Draft Environmental Impact Report was circulated for public review and comment on February 26, 2018, for a 45-day review period pursuant to Section 15072 of the CEQA Guidelines, which was extended by the City Council to end on May 10, 2018, Potential impacts were identified and analyzed in the Draft EIR
Copies of the reports were made available at the Community Development public counter at City Hall, on the City website, and at the La Habra Branch of the Orange County Library system. The City received 141 comments on the Draft EIR from state and local agencies, tribal authorities, interest groups, and the public. Pursuant to the provisions of the (CEQA) Guidelines, Section 15088.5(a), the City determined that a thorough response to the comments received by the City during the public review period necessitated the inclusion of significant new information.
The City circulated the “Partially Recirculated Draft EIR” for a 57-day review period beginning on November 22, 2019 and ending on January 17, 2020. Upon completion of the review period for the Partially Recirculated Draft EIR, the City of La Habra prepared responses to written comments that were received on the Draft EIR during the initial public review period as well as written comments received during the recirculation period that relate to the revised and recirculated portions of the Partially Recirculated Draft EIR. The Final Draft EIR including the revised technical studies, and responses to the comments were made available to the public for review on July 7, 2020 (see attachment 2.
