Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration

 
The City of Burbank has prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration to address the environmental effects of the proposed Willow Distribution Station Project. The Willow Substation will be an electrical substation that helps manage the flow of electricity in the Media District zone.

The Willow Distribution Station Project includes the demolition of the existing substation and construction of a new substation with increased power capacity. The scope of the project includes the construction of the new substation, transmission circuits, and distribution circuits. The new substation will include 69kV Gas-Insulated Switchgear, Power Transformers, and 12kV Air-Insulated Switchgear, with most of the equipment housed inside of two newly constructed CMU enclosures.

The proposed Project is located in the Media District at 228 S Naomi Street. Burbank is the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act. The public review period will be from February 23, 2022, until March 25, 2022. The public hearing date is tentatively scheduled for April 11, 2022.
