Environmental Review

To facilitate the redevelopment of Fulton and Elliott-Chelsea, the potential impacts to the human, built, and natural environment in the area will be analyzed through a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Decisions are not made in an EIS. Rather, the EIS analysis is one of several factors that decision-makers consider before they can implement a proposed project.


The environmental review process provides a unique opportunity for residents and the public to be involved in decision-making by formally providing comments throughout the process, beginning with the scoping period. We highly encourage residents to participate closely in this process.
