2010 CEQA Information
What is CEQA?
CEQA, or the California Environmental Quality Act, was adopted in 1970 and incorporated in the Public Resources Code §§21000-21177. The statute requires state and local agencies to identify the significant environmental impacts of their actions and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible.
CEQA applies to projects undertaken, funded or requiring an issuance of a permit by a public agency. The analysis of a project required by CEQA usually takes the form of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), Negative Declaration (ND), or Environmental Assessment (EA).
