Sonora, Ca — The Draft Environmental Impact Report has been released on the Lowe´s Home Improvement Project set to be constructed along Old Wards Ferry Rd.
The project consists of an 111,196 square foot building for general merchandise and a 27,720 square foot garden center. It also calls for the improvement of an 1,200 lineal foot section of Old Wards Ferry Rd.
A 600 foot section will be realigned to connect with Greenley Rd. at the Sanguinetti Rd. intersection, and an existing crossing of the Sierra Railroad will be relocated.
City of Sonora Community Development Director Ed Wyllie says that the report takes into account aesthetics, air quality, biological resources, geology, urban decay, noise and other significant issues.
Wyllie says that a public hearing is expected to be held during the December 8th Planning Commission meeting. Written responses may be submitted to the City of Sonora through December 26th. Copies of the EIR are available for view at the City Planning and Building Department at 94 N. Washington St., or at the Main Library at 480 Greenley Rd.
