Before drafting a study of how future Solano County Fairgrounds development might impact the environment, officials are seeking the public's participation.
A public scoping meeting Thursday night at Vallejo City Hall only drew one member of the public to comment on the plan.
A Vallejo resident shared concerns that the environmental study include a watershed management plan focused on environmental impacts to Lake Chabot, immediately adjacent to the fairgrounds property.
A digital slideshow from the presentation is available for download online at www.solanocounty.com/solano360.
Officials are still accepting written input, as well, on what to include when preparing the state-required environmental study, known as an Environmental Impact Report.
