CEQA
(California Environmental Quality Act)
Documents

 
 

What is CEQA?
The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) was adopted in 1970 and incorporated in the Public Resources Code 21000-21177.   Its basic purposes are to: inform governmental decision makers and the public about the potential significant environmental effects of proposed activities; identify ways that environmental damage can be avoided or significantly reduced; require changes in project through the use of alternatives or mitigation measures when feasible; and disclose to the public the reasons why a project was approved if significant environmental effects are involved.  CEQA applies to projects undertaken, funded or requiring an issuance of a permit by a public agency.

 

What is required in order to file a CEQA notice?
In order to file a CEQA notice with the County Clerk, you must present one original, two copies and the filing fees pursuant to Fish & Game Code 711.4 in order to file a Notice of Determination or Notice of Exemption.  All other filings require one original and one copy for each filing.  Any additional copies provided will be filed and returned to you as proof of filing.
