We applaud SACOG’s progress in development of the 2016 Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Community Strategy (MTP/SCS) update, and we call on all of the region’s jurisdictions to make the serious changes to their growth patterns and policies that will be necessary to make this Sustainable Communities Strategy a reality.

ECOS’ Comments on the Delta Tunnels

This comment letter is not intended to be exhaustive as pertains the myriad of problems with the tunnels project now reborn as “California WaterFix,” but rather it is intended for us to officially go on the record opposing this project because of the enormous deleterious environmental impacts in our region, and because of the inadequate analysis in the RDEIR/SDEIS as well as the inadequate avoidance, mitigation and and minimization measures proposed to address those impacts.
