What to do
The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) serves to:
- Disclose to the public the significant environmental effects of a proposed discretionary project through the preparation of an initial study, negative declaration, mitigated negative declaration, or environmental impact report.
- Prevent or minimize damage to the environment through the development of project alternatives, mitigation measures, and mitigation monitoring.
- Disclose to the public the agency decision-making process utilized to approve discretionary projects through findings and statements of overriding consideration.
- Enhance public participation in the environmental review process through scoping meetings, public notice, public review, hearings, and the judicial process.
Improve interagency coordination through early consultations, scoping meetings, notices of preparation, and State Clearinghouse review. Learn more...
