Having received comments from 34 public agencies, 41 non-governmental organizations, 115 individuals, and 1 email form letter submitted by 300 people, the Planning Department has just released over 1,000 pages of responses and revisions to the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the 34th America’s Cup (AC34).
The Dolphin Swimming and Boating Club and the South End Rowing Club are opposed to the use of Aquatic Park for AC34. Some question whether the EIR can even be completed in the timeframe required by the Host Agreement. And yes, the yacht marina slated for Rincon Point still raises some hackles despite already being downsized as rendered above.
Certification of the EIR is slated for December 15, the meeting should be a marathon.
