Environmental Assessment Committee


The Environmental Assessment Committee is comprised of one staff member from Community Development, Public Works and the City Attorney’s Office.

Environmental assessment checklists are submitted for projects that are not exempt according to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and require further analysis.  After discussing impacts and mitigation measures, the Committee makes recommendations regarding the necessity of preparation and advertisement of an Environmental Impact Report, Mitigated Negative Declaration or Negative Declaration for a project. The recommended environmental document is decided on by the approving body. Documents are available on the Environmental Reports page.

The Environmental Assessment Committee typically examines a project very early in the process so that the appropriate CEQA public review period can be advertised prior to action by the decision-making body.

The Environmental Assessment Committee meets on an as-needed basis.  Agendas are available to the public one week prior to the meeting.
