Environmental Documents & Notices
State law (California Environmental Quality Act) requires that all cities evaluate and consider the potential effect on the environment of projects they undertake directly, such as a capital works project, or for a private entity where the City approves an application.

If the City determines the project may have a significant effect on the environment, the City must prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR):
  • Describing the effect of the project on the environment
  • Suggesting "mitigation measures" to reduce the effect
  • Evaluating alternatives to the project which may have less effect on the environment

If the City determines the project will not have a significant effect on the environment, a (Mitigated) Negative Declaration is prepared stating the reasons why the project will not have a significant effect and suggested mitigation measures.

The EIR or (Mitigated) Negative Declaration must be certified or adopted by the City's decision-making body. Before the document is certified or approved, the City must:
  • Provide a draft copy for public review
  • Include comments that the City received on the draft, and the City's response to them
