Sierra Vista 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 in Roseville, California. The approximately 1,600-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 which is projected to occur in 2025 or 2040, depending on market conditions, the site would house approximately 17,000 residents. Key environmental issues involve impacts to biological resources including vernal pools and other seasonal wetlands, hydrology and water quality, and traffic. The EIS included an exhaustive alternatives analysis and a detailed evaluation of cumulative impacts.
