The Port of Long Beach will seek public input at 6 p.m. on November 2, 2011, on a proposal by Eagle Rock Aggregates Inc. to construct and operate a sand, gravel and granite aggregate import facility on privately owned land in the Harbor District. The terminal would receive, stockpile and distribute materials for construction projects in the Southern California region. The Port released the "Notice of Preparation" of the environmental studies concerning the project today, October 13, 2011.
The Eagle Rock Aggregate Terminal Project is being proposed by a private company on private land. Because the site is in the Harbor District, the project is undergoing environmental review by the Port of Long Beach and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The public “scoping meeting” will be held at:
6 p.m., November 2, 2011
Long Beach City Council Chambers
333 W. Ocean Blvd. 90802 (Parking structure entrance on the south side of Broadway between Chestnut and Cedar avenues.)
The purpose of the meeting will be to gather input on the Notice of Preparation, an early step in the environmental review process. Comments from these hearings will be used in preparation of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report.
Participants at the public meeting are requested to provide their testimony in written form if possible in order to ensure an accurate recording of statements, questions and comments. Please submit all written comments no later than 5 p.m. November 16, 2011.
