Subject: Champaign County Regional Environmental Framework Launch


Hi CUUATS Technical Members,


We, at the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission, are excited to announce the launch of the Champaign County Regional Environmental Framework (REF).


The REF is a centralized resource to help local planners, agencies, and engineers make informed decisions about transportation projects by providing data and analysis regarding ecological, cultural, and regulated-waste resources across Champaign County. As a preliminary screening tool, the REF allows users to identify compliance-triggering and ecologically vulnerable resources within a project location and incorporate them early into project planning, laying the groundwork for potential National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Illinois Dept. of Transportation (IDOT) environmental review processes.


The REF can be accessed at the link provided. The Phase 1 report can be accessed here, through the REF website, or under Projects + Documents on the CCRPC website. We will be continuing to work on and make improvements to the website, as needed.
