SaveGirdValley.com needs your help on the Draft EIR related to Attempt #6 to build a huge high school in Gird Valley
Bonsall Unified School District (BUSD) released for public comment its Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a huge 1,500-student high school proposed for a site in Fallbrook's Gird Valley.
The EIR is available for review via BUSD or on our SaveGirdValley.com website.
The public review/comment period began February 5 and continues through March 22, a scant 45 days. That doesn't give us much time to read, digest, write and submit comments on this massive 1,800-page document.
Required under California law (CEQA), this EIR is part of the process related to Attempt #6 to pass a bond to build a Walmart-sized school at the southern end of Gird Valley.
Meanwhile, at the same time this EIR is out for comment, BUSD (with 328 students housed in a brand new high school located at the Sullivan Campus in Bonsall) is calling 400 voters in the BUSD school district to see if they support building a new high school for 1,500 in Fallbrook's Gird Valley.
SaveGirdValley.com volunteers are already reading the EIR but we are also raising money to hire an environmental attorney to assist with our comments.
When you read the Draft EIR, you might want to keep in mind our previous comments, filed when the process was first announced. We'd like to hear your thoughts! Do dig down into it. We especially recommend the original biological reports buried in the Appendices section. Always illuminating.
Since time is limited, we are authorizing the lawyer to get started on the comments on the Draft EIR right away. We have chosen Kevin Johnson, the environmental lawyer who hosted the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) workshop last year for SaveGirdValley.com volunteers.
Thanks to those who have already sent checks to help with this very important work. Much appreciated! To those who have not yet contributed, we need you!
To have any chance of preserving this land, we need to participate and engage in this EIR process so your input, and financial support, is very important.
Please mail your checks (made out to SaveGirdValley.com) c/o Teresa Platt, 2915 Lakemont Drive or drop off at Dolly Harty's house at 3502 Oakcliff Drive. Give what you can since it all adds up and every check counts! Spread the word! Thanks!
