FOHC has found it very difficult to access copies of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Eastern Bypass. Since this is a critical document in the planning process- a document which examines the longterm costs to local habitats and wildlife- we have scanned excerpts and hope to be able to share the document in its entirety soon. In the meantime, excerpt 1 highlights the longterm costs and benefits of the Eastern Bypass for our community.
Note that there is no mention of Hurricane Creek Park. And the benefits of economic development seem to be highly concentrated and focused on the building of the bypass itself, as opposed to longterm benefits to the community at large.
