Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan Update

Environmental Review Scoping Has Begun

Post Date:09/19/2014 10:00 AM

Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan Update - Environmental Review Scoping Has Begun!

The City of Millbrae, as a Lead Agency, is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on the Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan (Specific Plan) Update process, as well as two Millbrae Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) projects within the Specific Plan boundaries (altogether referred to as the proposed Project). A Notice Of Preparation (NOP) to solicit public comments and input on the environmental impacts of the proposed Project was issued on September 19, 2014.

The City is undertaking a process to update the Specific Plan, which was initially developed and adopted in 1998. The Specific Plan Update process will redefine a vision for an approximately 116-acre area in the vicinity of the Millbrae BART/Caltrain Station. This update will also re-establish a framework for new development as a means to increase economic development in Millbrae and improve the quality of life of its residents. The two Millbrae TOD projects, located immediately east and west of the Millbrae BART/Caltrain Station, are intended to implement the updated vision of the Specific Plan. These two projects propose a mix of uses, including office, residential, hotel, open space, and retail uses.

The City of Millbrae encourages you to submit your ideas about what should be discussed in the EIR. The EIR scoping comment period for the proposed Project began on September 19, 2014 and continues through October 19, 2014. All scoping comments must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., October 19, 2014. Comments can be submitted in the following ways:

  • Write to: Marty Van Duyn, Community Development Project Manager, 621 Magnolia Avenue, Millbrae, CA 94030
  • Email: mvanduyn@ci.millbrae.ca.uswith “Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan Update EIR” as the subject
  • Provide comment at the public scoping meeting: Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Millbrae Library Room A, 1 Library Avenue, Millbrae, CA 94030. The meeting is free and open to all.
