On February 9 project staff will brief the PSC on the Ezone Map Correction Project. On February 23, there will be a continued public hearing on the updated draft ezone maps.
On January 26, City staff released an update of the proposed environmental zone maps. The revised maps reflect the results of site visits by staff and new wetland mapping.
