The Draft Phased Environmental Impact Statement for the East Monroe Amendment to the City of Monroe Comprehensive Plan and Concomitant Rezone has been issued by the City of Monroe and is available for public review.
The proposed action is an amendment to the City of Monroe Comprehensive Plan to change the land use designation and a concomitant rezone changing the zoning classification of approximately 50 acres of land located north of US 2 near the eastern city limits of the City of Monroe from Limited Open Space to General Commercial.
This action in and of itself does not have any environmental impacts. However, as this action is the first in an anticipated series of related actions, this proposed action is being reviewed with a phased environmental impact statement. Future development within the project area will be required to supplement or amend this environmental impact statement when more specific development actions are proposed.

A public hearing regarding the DPEIS will held before the City of Monroe Planning Commission on Monday, March 12, 2012 at 7:00 PM. The hearing will be held in the Council Chambers at 806 W. Main Street, Monroe.
