Among the impacts cited in the draft environmental impact report, there are "significant and unavoidable" impacts in regards to air pollution and climate change caused by car traffic and new building construction.
Numerous nearby intersections along San Antonio Road would continue to operate with a "D" level of service rating (just shy of the worst "F" traffic rating) under the proposal. The only significant traffic impact, according to the draft EIR, would be to the Miller Avenue and San Antonio Road intersection, currently rated "F", which would suffer "significant impacts" but could be made "less than significant" by prohibiting left turns onto Miller Avenue from San Antonio Road.
For a closer look at the 312-page report, a PDF file can be downloaded on the city's website at tinyurl.com/SACstudy.
Comments on the draft EIR can be made until Jan. 14, addressed to Mountain View senior planner Scott Plambaeck or e-mailed to Scott.Plambaeck@mountainview.gov.
