Salinas Valley Memorial Health Care System Facility Modernization CEQA Compliance, Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital District

EMC Planning Group is currently assisting the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital District with CEQA compliance for their proposed hospital project. The proposed project is a modernization and replacement project to provide earthquake resistant structures and meet the current standards for healthcare facilities. Although the overall building square footage will increase, the project does not include expanding the capacity of the facilities, expanding the services offered, or increasing the number of hospital beds.

The environmental evaluation is focusing on impacts associated with construction activities, e.g. air quality, noise, traffic and circulation, and operational activities including noise and traffic and circulation.

In additional to preparation of an initial study and negative declaration, EMC Planning Group is preparing all of the CEQA notices and providing document distribution, response to public comments, CEQA findings, and a mitigation monitoring program.
