CEQA Public Comment Period

The Marin Open Space District (MCOSD) has prepared a draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Bolinas Lagoon Wye Wetlands Resiliency Project. The IS/MND provides information regarding the setting of the project area, the project description, analysis of any potentially significant environmental impacts that could result from implementation of the proposed project, and mitigation measures to reduce potentially significant environmental impacts to a less than significant level. Mitigation measures have been included to address potentially significant impacts in the Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, and Transportation topic areas. The IS/MND concludes that, with implementation of the mitigation measures, the proposed project would not result in significant environmental impacts.

The public comment period took place July 5, 2023, 8:30 a.m. to August 8, 2023, 5:00 p.m.
