Vallejo Marine Terminal/ORCEM EIR – Draft EIR Review Deadline Extended

Vallejo Marine Terminal/ORCEM EIR – Second Meeting Announced
The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Vallejo Marine Terminal/Orcem Project is now available for a 60-day public review period.  The City has decided to extend the review period for the following reasons: 

  1. The unusual complexity of the proposed VMT/Orcem project and the highly technical nature of the environmental issues associated with this project.
  2. The fact that the original posting of the EIR was missing certain source data from the appendices. While the analysis contained in the EIR is sound, the City wishes to provide the public with ample time to review not just the EIR, but also all of the supporting data. 
  3. Numerous requests from members of the public and officials for an extension of the review period.

Vallejo Marine Terminal/Orcem Project Draft EIR Second Public Meeting – October 25th 4:00-6:00 p.m.

The City is holding a second public meeting on the VMT/Orcem Draft EIR.  The meeting will be held at the Norman King Community Center, 545 Magazine Street.  The full report and additional information can be reviewed at The public may comment on Open City Hall here.  

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for members of the public to provide verbal comments on and ask questions about the adequacy of the Draft EIR for the Vallejo Marine Terminal/Orcem Project.  All comments and questions will be recorded and provided to the City’s consultant who will prepare detailed written responses which will be included in the Final EIR.  Responses will not be provided by City staff at this meeting.  Written comment forms will be made available at the meeting as an alternative to speaking.
