EIR for USS Iowa?

New, 17 comments

The latest in the city's bid to bring the USS Iowa to the port has backers stating that having to do a costly $1 million EIR could kill the project, according to the Daily Breeze. Nothing like un-sexy talk of "downtown stream effects." Via the Breeze: "Arguing that a simple addendum to the already certified waterfront study would suffice, John Miller of San Pedro said doing a separate and full report would result in an "outrageous expense" and delay. '"At a briefing in early January we were told that the Iowa project would have to analyze downstream effects, which were already analyzed in Alternative Four of the waterfront project,'" said Miller, who serves on a port advisory committee."
