The topic for the January DCAC meeting was to be a community discussion on the proposed All Peoples Church on the east side of College Avenue between I-8 and Del Cerro Blvd. It was the DCAC’s understanding a draft of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) or a Mitigated Negative Dec (the MND is a simpler environmental report) and the Traffic Report would have been published for public review prior to the January meeting.
At this time, neither report is currently available. It is our understanding the All Peoples Church is producing another submittal to the city. This will require the city to produce another Cycles Report (a submittal is a response to questions from the city about the project and the city responds accepting or rejecting the project’s responses to the city’s questions). There are now three key elements regarding the church project which are not available to the public – draft environmental report, the traffic report and another Cycles Report.
When the documents are available for public review we will call a special meeting of the DCAC.
When the draft environmental document is released, everyone will have a minimum of 30 days to submit their concerns to the city.
This will all transpire prior the All Peoples Church project being placed on the agenda for the Navajo Community Planners, Inc. (NCPI) as an action item. All of the Del Cerro community concerns will be presented to NCPI at that time.
