Preserve Lamorinda Open Space

BOLLINGER VALLEY FINAL EIR BEFORE PLANNING COMMISSION OCT 15

In Spring of 2013 the Town of Moraga circulated a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for a proposed 152-unit “Bollinger Valley” development on 186 acres of open space adjacent to Las Trampas Regional Wilderness.

The Town received many letters from residents as well as a detailed legal and technical analysis by PLOS. Since then, the community has awaited a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR). The FEIR is expected to become available in September 2018, and the Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a hearing on the project on October 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm at the Moraga Town Council Chambers, 335 Rheem Blvd.

Based on information provided in the DEIR, the proposed project would add nearly 1,400 daily car trips to Lamorinda’s roads, bulldoze an astonishing 1.5 million cubic yards of soil, cut down more than 300 mature native trees and line a pristine ridgeline with rooftops. Precious habitat for raptors and songbirds, foxes, coyotes, deer, and bobcats, as well as threatened species such as the California red-legged frog and Alameda whipsnake, will be lost forever. More information about this hearing will be posted here as it becomes available.
