Mid-Coast Notice of Intent published in Federal Register
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) published a new Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register on July 19, 2011, to supplement the previous scoping period on the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project environmental document under National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This decision was made due to the length of time since the original NOI for the project, which was published in April 1990. No scoping meetings are required for this NEPA scoping effort.
The Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project will extend trolley service from the Old Town Transit Center north to the University City community, serving major destinations including Westfield UTC shopping mall, UCSD, and downtown San Diego. This project is funded in part by the San Diego region’s TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation projects.
Written comments can be submitted by August 15, 2011, to Leslie Blanda, New Starts/Environmental/Planning Project Manager, SANDAG, 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101, or emailed to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
