Environmental Impact Report Released for All Peoples Church Project – Mission Times Courier


The big news for Del Cerro residents is that the long-awaited Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the All Peoples Church project has finally been released.

All residents have the opportunity to comment on the document, both for and against for the next 45 days. A two-week extension can be granted on request. After the public comment period, the city will begin work on the final RIE which includes the response to the questions raised during the public comment period. It may take several months. The link to see the RIE project follows.

I understand the traffic report is included in the EIR as an attachment. To view the document, go to sandiego.gov and in the search box in the upper right corner type All Peoples Church EIR or here is the link – sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/dsd_636444_-_draft_enivonment_impact_report_date_8-31- 2022. pdf.

Jackie O’Connor, President of Friends of Del Cerro (FODC), would like to remind everyone to be safe and use the City of San Diego’s “Get It Done” app to report issues or concerns related to the city, such as traffic lights, streetlights, graffiti, homeless encampments, potholes, overgrown sidewalks, faded street identification signs and much more. It is easy to use and you will receive a notification when your item has been received and you will receive a progress report and when the item has been resolved or forwarded to the appropriate department.

To download the APP, go to the App Store for Apple phones or devices or the Play Store for Android phones and devices. The APP is also available on the City of San Diego website at: sandiego.gov/get-it-done. Don’t always assume someone else will report it. Take a minute to download the “Get It Done” app, and when you see something, take another minute to report it.

Our Fire and Rescue Department continues to emphasize the need to be prepared, especially if you live next to a canyon. All of the brush in our community is very dry and will continue to lose moisture as we move through September and October.

FODC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The FODC is a community organization of local residents and businesses committed to increasing the cohesion of Del Cerro and surrounding communities by promoting and ensuring safety, beautification and economic development.

We invite you to learn more about our organization, the many community projects we are involved in to improve our community, and to get involved – either by joining Friends of Del Cerro as a supporting member or becoming a partner through a sponsorship or a donation.
