to PAN,

FYI.  Please send in comments if haven't already done so.


Please pass this along to others in your communities,


I wanted to give you all a 'heads-up' reminder and an update on the 231 Grant (Teacher Housing) project and the EIR (Environmental Impact Report) comments deadline -- this FRIDAY, November 19th, 5 p.m.


If you have any EIR comments, you MUST submit them by Friday, 5 p.m. to:


To simplify it and help explain what it means to you personally, I've attached a "231 Grant Avenue" summary for quickly review and adoption for your EIR comments. I hope this is helpful.


Personally, over the past several weeks, I've tried to go through the entire EIR (hundreds of pages) and make written comments on each section. Those comments are also available (see the "DEIR Comments" attachment) if anyone is interested in reading them.

Please understand these attachments are not perfect, but I've tried my best to produce accurate and correct information.


In any case, it is critical for everyone to get their EIR comments in by this Friday, 5 p.m.


If anyone is interested in joining me in sending in EIR comments, please let me know and I will include your name with my own comments on Friday -- the more united we can be, the more influence we will have with County officials with 231 Grant.


Please email or call me, if you have questions.


Best Wishes,

Terry Holzemer
