This Alternatives Evaluation Report was prepared by DC&E, their sub consultant team and Butte County staff from several departments.  Every effort was made to provide an accurate and objective evaluation of each of the 9 different constraints evaluated for each of the 34 study areas (31 in the unincorporated county) and the three alternatives.  This information will be VERY helpful for the upcoming discussions in Workshop Series #4 which begin Thursday, March 27, 2008. 

Where do you begin with a 736 page report such as this?  I can guess that most people will want to jump right to a Study Area of their interest/concern.  However, I would suggest that you begin by reading the 00.4_I_Introduction followed by 38_Appendix B: Evaluation Methodology.  This will give you an understanding of the purpose of this study and the evaluation process.  This is important since each constraint may utilize a different meaning for the scoring.  Therefore, you can't compare an A from Biological Resources with an A for Circulation; it is a relative scale for that constraint.  You will also need to have an understanding of what a Study Area and Alternative are (and aren't) as found in 37_Appendix A: Alternatives Descriptions...Tim

CDs of this report are available upon request.  This document (and free CDs) will be available in printed version for viewing at each of the County Libraries very soon.  If you have any questions about this report or would like a CD mailed to you, please contact dbreedon@buttecounty.net
