Please send written comments  via electronic mail to  [email protected]  with the subject line "Partially Revised Circulated DEIR" or by   first-class mail to Melinda Marks, Executive Officer, San Joaquin River Conservancy, 5469 E Olive Ave., Fresno, CA 93727.  Comments must be postmarked or emailed by October 3, 2017.           

The River Parkway Trust is encouraging the Conservancy Board to approve the River West EIR with alternatives 1 and 5 - providing additional vehicle access to the project site from the City of Fresno.  

Alternative 1 includes vehicle access on a public road to public land.
Alternative 5 includes vehicle access on a public easement to public land.

Mark your calendars for these upcoming meetings when the Conservancy Board will hear public testimony and make a final decision on the River West Fresno EIR. It is important that the Conservancy Board hear from you. Please plan to attend each of these important meetings.
