The 's proposal to build church in downtown Clayton likely will be an ongoing issue throughout 2011.
A final decision on the 42,000-square-foot project is still months away, but Saturday marks the end of the public comments period on the inital draft of the complex's environmental impact report.
David Woltering, Clayton's community development director, said his office has received about 100 comments on issues pertaining to the project.
Woltering emphasized that the community development department is only looking at comments and questions pertaining to the legal adequacy and accuracy of the EIR, not on broader issues of the proposal.
When the public comment period closes Saturday, city staff will have 60 days to answer the comments.
After the EIR is finalized, the issue will go to the Planning Commission and the City Council, probably in the fall. It is expected that each body will hold multiple meetings on the project.
