Early property owner notification
Letters were mailed out on June 16, to property owners potentially impacted by one or more route and station alternatives under review. The letters included an invitation for property owners to meet individually with staff. Staff began meeting with property owners on June 26 to discuss the project, the specific type of impact, route and station alternatives, real estate process and schedule. So far staff have met with over 75 property owners.
Early notice to property owners provides potentially impacted business and residents an opportunity to meet with staff to be informed about the project, specific impact and get all questions answered before the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) is published and public hearings are scheduled. Each property owner should be prepared to provide feedback on the project when DEIS formal comment period begins.
