General Plan Update Program - CEQA

CEQA and the General Plan

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a statute that requires state and local agencies to identify potential environmental impacts, and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible. A public agency must comply with CEQA when it undertakes an activity defined by CEQA as a "project," such as a General Plan Update.

Pursuant to CEQA, the General Plan Update’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will identify potential environmental impacts and feasible mitigation measures. The preparation of an EIR includes specific time frames for public notice and hearings.

Final EIR (March 2015)

The Draft EIR for the General Plan Update has been completed and is available for public review. The formal public review period is from June 23, 2014 to August 7, 2014.
