Today we're releasing a video that talks about two of the potential routes evaluated as part of Alternative 5 in the DEIR. These two alternatives were evaluated in the DEIR and determined to be infeasible or impractical due to environmental issues. We decided to show them anyway, because there are still people in the community that are advocating for these routes.
Tomorrow we'll release a video showing the route that was selected as the official Alternative 5.
This week we'll be releasing short videos each day that show different aspects of the proposed project or the alternatives evaluated as part of the DEIR. We're doing this in response to comments we've heard from people that have trouble visualizing different aspects of the project from looking at the maps and diagrams included in the DEIR.
If you have specific questions about the project, please let us know. We may be able to answer your question in a future video.
As a reminder, the River Parkway Trust is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was formed in 1988 to create the San Joaquin River Parkway. The San Joaquin River Conservancy is a state agency that was formed in 1992 to create the San Joaquin River Parkway. We work closely together because we have the mutual goal of creating the Parkway, but the Conservancy Board is the decision-maker on this particular project. The River Parkway Trust is providing this information as a service to the community.
We encourage you to send comments to the Conservancy Board.
Please urge the San Joaquin Conservancy to provide effective and equitable access to the River West Fresno property on the Fresno side of the river by providing vehicular access and some parking from both the Riverview Drive and the Palm and Nees access points.
Thanks for watching, and be sure to send your comments on the DEIR to Melinda Marks by April 15, 2017.
