Draper Corridor Scoping Open House...


The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) intend to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate proposed public transportation improvements to extend fixed guideway transit service through the cities of Sandy and Draper to the southernmost part of Salt Lake County, Utah. The Draper Transit Corridor Project, as defined in the Wasatch Front Regional Council long-range plan, was recently identified as the preferred alternative at the conclusion of a locally prepared alternatives analysis. The EIS will build on the results of the local alternatives analysis and evaluate other reasonable alternatives developed through the scoping process.

The EIS will be prepared in accordance with section 102(2)c of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The purpose of this notice is to alert interested parties regarding the intent to prepare the EIS, to invite public participation in the EIS process and to announce that a public scoping meeting will be conducted. All interested citizens are invited to attend a public scoping open house to learn more about the project and provide input. The public scoping open house will be held:

Wednesday, December 12, 2007
