The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires that a public agency consider, as part of the decision-making process, the potential significant environmental effects of discretionary projects that it undertakes, funds, or authorizes and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible. A "discretionary project" is a project requiring judgment or deliberation when the public agency or body decides to approve or disapprove a particular activity.  CEQA also requires disclosure of potential significant environmental effects of discretionary project to the public, through the preparation of an Initial Study (IS), Negative Declaration (ND), Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) or Environmental Impact Report (EIR).   

Below are links for current CEQA documents available for public review, as required under CEQA:​

Environmental Quality Act

The California Environmental Quality Act requires that each public agency consider, as part of the decision-making process, the significant environmental effects of discretionary projects that it undertakes, funds, or authorizes. Depending on the project or the significance of potential effects, the agency may comply with CEQA by determining the project is exempt, or by preparing a negative declaration or mitigated negative declaration for projects that will not have significant effects on the environment. If there is a fair argument based on substantial evidence that a project may have a significant environmental effect, an informational document called an environmental impact report is prepared. 

Here you will find links to documents that provide for the environmental review required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

There are no EIR documents at this time.
