The Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Report

A Supplemental Draft EIR has been prepared to analyze impacts associated with the potential demolition of the IVG Packing House located within the Jeffrey Open Space Spine.  In accordance with Section 15163(b) of the CEQA Guidelines, the Supplemental EIR will only contain information necessary to supplement the previous EIR in order to evaluate the project as revised.  No other changes to the project, as analyzed in the previously certified EIR, are proposed.  The proposed demolition is being considered as part of the proposed Jeffrey Open Space Spine project, a passive open space corridor proposed along the eastern side of Jeffrey Road between the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway to the Natural Communities Conservation Plan (NCCP) area north of Portola Parkway The public review and comment period for the SDEIR will end on March 31, 2003.
