Marinda Heights Environmental Impact Review Discussion – June 3, 2020 Town Council Meeting

The next step in the development process is for the Marinda Heights project to undergo an EIR, or Environmental Impact Report.
Bids for completing this report were reviewed by the town and a preferred vendor was selected and agreed to by the developer.
The EIR report process will likely take ~1 year, after which there will be additional hearings about the development.  So, there is still a long way to go.  However, the further we go down this road the less likely it is that we will be able to find a way to fund the preservation of this area.  Anyone with ideas or leads on how to find funding to avoid development of this area, please contact me.  (
On Wednesday night, this will be discussed at the Town Council meeting.   Please feel free to join and comment.   Meeting information below.
