Placer Vineyards Specific Plan
Impact Sciences was selected by the US Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a Specific Plan that would facilitate the development of a large-scale, mixed-use, mixed- density community to the west of Roseville, Caliofornia in unincorporated Placer County. The approximately 5,230-acre site would be developed with a mix of residential, commercial, public and quasi-public uses, open space, and infrastructure improvements to support these uses. At build out, the site would house approximately 30,000 to 50,000 residents depending on final density. Key environmental issues involve impacts to biological resources including vernal pools and other seasonal wetlands, aesthetics, agricultural resources, air quality, global climate change, hydrology and water quality, noise, utilities, and traffic, and an extensive alternatives analysis.
