California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), is a statute that requires state and local agencies to identify and evaluate the significant environmental impacts of their actions and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible.  Reviews are conducted pursuant to CEQA, which provide guidelines for implementing the CEQA process. Certain actions identified by the state, known as Categorical Exemptions, are exempt from environmental review. Such exempt projects generally include small-scale new construction, some changes of use, some additions, and other generally small projects. These projects are enumerated in CEQA Guidelines.

This page will provide links to public notices that have been prepared for projects that are subject to the CEQA process. If you are just beginning to learn about CEQA, visit the Governor's Office of Planning and Research Getting Started page.
