Pomona College draft master plan open for review

The city prepared and completed a Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Pomona College master plan.

The Recirculated Draft EIR will be available for public review and comment through December 3 at Claremont City Hall, the Claremont Library, Alexander Hughes Community Center and the Youth Activity Center. It may also be viewed on the city’s website at www.claremontca.org.

Significant new information includes the relocation of Renwick House to accommodate construction of the new Pomona College Museum of Art project and demolition of the bungalows, as well as information relating to a sewer study currently being finalized by the city, which has found existing and expected future capacity deficiencies in sewer lines serving Pomona College.

Sections of the EIR that have not been changed since the previous final EIR released in March 2015 are not included in this version. During the public review period, comments may be submitted in writing to Belle Newman, contract planner, at bnewmanplanning@gmail.com. The city requests that commenters limit the scope of their comments to the information contained in the new draft.

The Claremont Architectural Commission reviewed the draft EIR on Wednesday night. A full story on that meeting will appear in the Friday, November 6 edition of the COURIER.
