This small community is located northwest of Fresno off Highway 33. Incorporated in 1914, Firebaugh has grown from ferry crossing to a small agriculture based city. Before the railroad, the San Joaquin River was the major thoroughfare to upstream communities. The ferry, located in Firebaugh, was the major crossing for prospectors heading for gold country. Ferries were the only way to cross the river until the late 1800’s when the first bridges were built. The San Joaquin River played a major role in the settling of the valley and Firebaugh is one of the oldest historical towns on the Westside.
NOTICE OF ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENT
The City of Firebaugh has prepared the attached Initial Environmental Study for the project “Valley Health Team Project”. The project is a series of planning permits for the development of an employee parking lot (to serve a previously-approved medical clinic) on a lot containing approximately 7,800 square feet (0.2 acre) located on the southeast corner of N Street (State Highway 33) and Zozaya Street. Planning and zoning requests include a General Plan Amendment, a zone change, and an amendment to a previously-approved Conditional Use Permit.
The study has been prepared in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The study includes a description of the project and a discussion of potential environmental impacts that may result from the project. The study indicates that the project will not have a significant impact on the environment provided that mitigation measures are incorporated into the project design and operation. As such, the study recommends the City adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration.
Interested persons and agencies are invited to review the study and send comments before the closing date of November 22, 2019. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact the City’s planning consultant, Karl Schoettler at (559) 734-8737 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send written comments to:
