Environmental Review Process

The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering is beginning the environmental review process for the proposed Sixth Street PARC Project.  The City has determined that an environmental impact report (EIR) is required. A Notice of Preparation (NOP) and Initial Study (IS), which describe the Sixth Street PARC Project and the anticipated scope of the EIR, are available for public review and comment.  This phase in the environmental review process is called the ‘scoping period’ (see figure below) and typically lasts 30 days.

Agency and public input during the scoping period will shape the scope and content of the analysis in the Draft EIR. Once completed, the Draft EIR will share the results of the technical studies the City conducted and be circulated for public and agency review and comment.
