Environmental review of Beaumont Bluffs in the City of Jordan is available for public comment. Please access the Supplemental EAW document at the following link:
Comments will be accepted May 30, 2023, through June 29, 2023.
The City of Jordan invites the public to review and comment on the Supplemental Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) regarding the Beaumont Bluffs development project. The project is proposed on 232.3 acres on the southwest side of the City of Jordan and consists of a mix of twin homes, villas, single-family residences, and open space. About 123.6 acres will remain undeveloped, including approximately 80 acres owned by the city. On January 18, 2022, the City Council voted to approve the declaration that no Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was needed for the Beaumont Bluffs preliminary plat application. However, Dba JMH Beaumont Bluffs LLC is requesting to amend the Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) to allow for the removal and export of 100,000-125,000 cubic yards of soil, described as medium-to-fine-grained sand, for foundation and roadway construction projects. The proposal to remove soil off-site was not included in the original EAW and therefore a Supplemental EAW is needed for additional environmental review.
Copies of the Supplemental EAW, which document the purpose and need for the project, along with the anticipated social, economic, and environmental impacts, are available for public comment beginning May 30 and can be accessed at the city’s website: jordanmn.gov.
Written comments will be accepted through June 29, 2023. Comments should be submitted in writing to Barrett Voigt at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to 210 East 1st St., Jordan, MN 55352. For more information, please call the city at 952-492-7929.
