The city of Tracy has announced its intention to study the environmental impacts of the Tracy Hills Specific Plan Amendment Project and is asking for comment from interested people in the community.
William Dean, assistant development and engineering services director for the city, identified several areas that might be impacted by building 1,566 homes, parks, businesses, schools and highway on-and off-ramps at Tracy Hills.
The development is planned to straddle Interstate 580 between Corral Hollow and Hansen roads.
A Notice of Preparation report from the city about the 6,175-acre site details the project’s "potential significant impact" on the aesthetics, agricultural resources, biological resources and greenhouse gas emissions of the area.
Dean expected city engineers would complete the full environmental impact report before the end of the year.
Interested parties can offer their comments or concerns to the five members of the city of Tracy Planning Commission when they take up the issue at their regular meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the council chambers at City Hall, 333 Civic Center Plaza.
