Final SEIS (Volume II)
This Final SEIS responds to public and agency comments received on the Draft SEIS, issued on February 24, 215 and provides corrections and clarifications to the environmental analysis contained in the Draft SEIS. The Final SEIS also evaluates a Preferred Alternative identified by the Planning Commission, which is a variation of Alternative 3 and includes a revised land use and zoning plan for East Sumner resulting in slightly less housing and employment capacity than Alternative 3 and other minor changes. The Preferred Alternative for East Sumner includes substantial public improvements including an offsite wetland mitigation bank and new and existing street improvements to support future growth and development. The Preferred Alternative supports the transition of East Sumner into a vibrant urban village with a mix of uses and public amenities in a compact and walkable development pattern.
