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
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
