The City of Oceanside released a Notice of Preparation and Public Scoping Meeting for an EIR on November 22, 2017. A scoping meeting was conducted on December 13, 2017 at the Melba Bishop Recreation Center.  Due to the recent Lilac Fire, the City is scheduling a second scoping meeting to allow those impacted by the fire an additional opportunity to participate in the scoping process. The response period to the NOP will be extended an additional two weeks from the date of the January 16, 2018 scoping meeting and will conclude on January 30, 2017.

Pursuant to Section 15082(a) of the California Environmental Quality Act (1970), the City of Oceanside will be the lead agency responsible for preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the subject project.  The City has concluded that the project could result in potentially significant environmental impacts and therefore an EIR is required. The City requests input regarding the scope and content of the EIR. 

The Notice of Preparation is available on the City’s website at
