Land Use Project Updates
The River Parkway Trust participates in the land use planning process for projects affecting the San Joaquin River and the 22-mile Parkway. This page is used to provide updates and information about the projects the River Parkway Trust is currently tracking. We encourage members of the public to get involved and make your voice heard!
The public comment period for the Notice of Preparation will be June 4 through July 6, 2021. The City of Fresno will hold a public scoping meeting on Wednesday, June 23, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm via Zoom Webinar. We encourage you to attend the scoping meeting to provide your input and ask questions about the project. Comments received during the public review period will be used to develop the scope and content of the Environmental Impact Report.
The City of Fresno's Parks Masterplan outlines the significant need for more park space. The proposed project would reduce potential new park space by 15.30 acres. We are also concerned about the future impacts on Camp Pashayan, the Fresno County Horse Park, Riverbottom Park, and the San Joaquin River Restoration Program.

Public Scoping Meeting - Tapestry Project NOP
Written Comments: Comments in response to the NOP will be accepted through 5:00 pm, July 6, 2021. Please send your written comments to:
In June 2020, the River Parkway Trust first shared notice about the CEMEX Rockfield Expansion Project. CEMEX has applied for a new conditional use permit to continue mining operations near the San Joaquin River for 100 years. The expansion project would also allow excavation of hard rock to 600 feet deep at the Quarry site located adjacent to Ledger Island and Lost Lake Park. A public scoping meeting was held on June 24, 2020.
As of June 2021, the County of Fresno has not yet released a Draft Environmental Impact Report or the Scoping Summary Document. We anticipate that these documents will be released at some point this year. We will continue to track the project and provide updates as new information becomes available.
