Planning Commission June 27, 2024 CEQA Public Workshop Materials

Planning Commissioners to get CEQA refresher in June 27th Workshop

The El Dorado County Planning Commission, facing an aggressive project review schedule for the second half of 2024, will begin with a public workshop on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) at this Thursday’s Planning Commission Hearing.

CEQA – long cited by development proponents and opponents alike as the reason for California’s prohibitively expensive and often litigated project approvals process – has been in place since 1970, signed into law by California Governor Ronald Reagan.

Subsequent governors and California agencies, such as City councils, County Boards of Supervisors, and more, have complained that the CEQA process is why development in California is so expensive – and why their pet projects don’t come to fruition. Truthfully, CEQA’s intent was to allow for a full public review of potential significant environmental impacts from development projects. It allows for both project applicants, and community residents, to weigh in on Environmental concerns. CEQA allows for “significant unavoidable environmental impacts” if they provide a public benefit.
