Big Wave draft EIR missing key section

The draft Environmental Impact Report for the Big Wave wellness center and office park complex, which is currently being circulated in a formal comment period, lacks a crucial section.  Section IV-N, which deals with utilities (Sewer, Water, Solid Waste, and Energy) is missing from the printed report distributed to county and other government agencies, as well as the public.

The individual section can be downloaded from the county’s website, but it has not been distributed to anyone who is responsible for reviewing the EIR. Nor does the full, downloadable PDF include this crucial section.

The county only required the applicant to print 30 copies of the report, only one of which is available to the public in the Half Moon Bay Library. This was a source of significant concern to attendees at Wednesday’s Midcoast Community Council meeting. Citizens wanting a physical copy have to pay the county about $50 to cover printing costs.

Thanks to Montara Fog for checking the online copy.
