Scoping is the process of determining the content of the Draft EIS. The purpose of Scoping is to confirm the purpose and need for the project, identify appropriate alternatives that could address project needs, focus on potentially significant issues that should be studied in the Draft EIS, and eliminate issues that are not significant and/or have been addressed by prior studies.
The following documents include technical analysis updates completed since the public Scoping period ended (February 17, 2012) along with Bottineau Transitway Draft EIS presentation slideshows, Scoping input, and Scoping recommendations provided by Bottineau Transitway Draft EIS committees.
The following documents contain copies of all comments received during the Bottineau Transitway Scoping process. Comments are categorized into written comments received, and oral comments recorded at Scoping Open House meetings. Written comments are organized by residents’ city of origin, or by other entities offering comments including corridor cities, organizations, resource agencies and other stakeholders.
