Rancho La Habra EIR Now Available

The draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for Rancho La Habra is now available for public review at City Hall, on the City’s website, and at the La Habra Public Library.

The EIR is required by the California Environmental Quality Act and must evaluate the proposed development’s potential effects on traffic, schools, water supply, native species, aesthetics, public services and other topics. CEQA also requires that the EIR must identify feasible ways to reduce impacts to a less than significant level through plan refinements or mitigation funded by the project applicant. If an impact can’t be reduced to less than significant, the City Council will be required to adopt a Statement of Overriding Consideration at a public meeting.

The 45-day public review period for the EIR will close on April 11, 2018. The City is required to respond in writing to all comments it receives on the Draft EIR. Comments can be submitted electronically to andrew@lahabraca.gov or mailed to:

Andrew Ho
Community Development Director
City of La Habra
110 E. La Habra Blvd.
La Habra CA 90633

The public may also testify at public hearings before the La Habra Planning Commission and City Council. If you would like to receive an email when these hearings are scheduled, please provide your contact information to us via the Contact Us/Comments page.
