Forest Ranch Proposed Trip Generation *
    Note:  Because one trip equals one way, the Net
    External Site Project Trips of 8,359 (divided by 2)
    implies that 4,179 vehicles will travel from and return
    to the project daily.
IMPORTANT:  Please email or
write the
Planning Department
and request that the Public
Comment period for the
"re-circulated" FHDCP DEIR be
extended for 90 days.  Mistakes
have been made in the past and
now a Forest Ranch "option" has
been added.  It takes time to
review the report and understand
all aspects!  Thank you.
