Grading Map of Proposed Project

Grading Map of Proposed Project

On May 29th, EBCNPS submitted comments on the DEIR for the proposed James Donlon Boulevard Extension in Pittsburg. This roadway extension would involve the filling of multiple drainages and require more than 2 million cubic yards of grading (2,165,000 cubic yards) including areas of native grassland, oak woodlands, and riparian areas. Our letter commented on the inadequacy of the alternatives analysis, the need to consider the growth-inducing impacts of this project, the need to plan for weed management measures, and the importance of using local ecotypes of native species for landscaping and revegetation.
