A's issue Notice of Preparation
Submitted By Steven R. Lloyd, A's to Fremont Support Group
On Tuesday, November 18, 2008 the A's issued its Notice of Preparation (NOP) with the City of Fremont. A Notice of Preparation is a document stating that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be prepared for a particular project. It is a required step for final city approval of the A's ballpark proposal.
The NOP marks the start of a 30-day period for public agencies and members of the public to comment on an ongoing environmental analysis of the project and invites interested parties to submit comments on the project. The first of these meetings is scheduled for Monday, December 8, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. at Fremont City Hall located at 3300 Capitol Ave. in Fremont. Following a 30-day public comment period, the city will prepare and submit a Draft Environmental Impact Report to the Fremont support group.
Also, the A's and Fremont Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Toys For Tots event on Sunday, December 7 from 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. at City Beach in Fremont. A's owner, Lew Wolff, and A's players, Ryan Sweeney and Travis Buck will be on hand to sign autographs in exchange for the donation of a new, unwrapped toy!
