EBCNPS has read the final draft of the City of Richmond’s General Plan Update.  We have commented on a number of encouraging aspects of this plan including its goal for shoreline protection in areas EBCNPS has delineated as “Botanical Priority Protection Areas“.  The document also speaks to removal and management of invasive species, landscaping with natives, and water conservation measures.

See EBCNPS Comments on Richmond’s GP here.

This stated, EBCNPS finds that the General Plan lacks proper environmental review, specifically when referencing impacts to Point Molate.  The impacts of this project on the entire City and region need to be disclosed in the review of the General Plan.  Notably, EBCNPS still finds the current Draft EIR/S for the Point Molate Casino to be inadequate for impacts to natural resources.  We ask for residents and concerned citizens to write their local representative to tell them that this project is not well reviewed and it is certainly not an environmentally sustainable or sensitive project.
