|Air Quality Impacts
The EIR identified two significant Air Quality impacts resulting from the project.
In January 2000, Renewed HOPE Housing Advocates, East Bay Housing Organizations, ARC Ecology and Clearwater Revival Co. submitted the following comments on the EIR, to the City of Alameda, on air quality impacts resulting from the Catellus Mixed-use Development.
- New traffic generated by the project would increase regional emissions beyond significance standards. This impact is considered unavoidable.
- Construction-period activities would generate exhaust and fugitive particulate matter (including asbestos in demolition debris) emissions. These impacts are to be mitigated by following Bay Area Air Quality Managent District regulations and changing construction site work habits.
