Revised BLUMA EIS Schedule

As presented to City Council on May 18th, the revised Balanced Land Use and Mobility Analysis (BLUMA) EIS schdule is now available by clicking here.

The BLUMA EIS project team discovered a scrivener’s error in the City’s 2015 Comprehensive Plan. This resulted in inconsistencies in data points in analysis for the Draft EIS. The most recent project timeline did not include time to resolve this previously undiscovered situation and has been revised as described below.
