Public Comments on the SB 226 CEQA Update

Comments on the May 2012 Update

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research wishes to thank all of those that submitted written comments on the revised draft of the proposed additions to the CEQA Guidelines related to infill streamlining.  Comments submitted during the review period contributed significantly to OPR’s final Guidelines proposal.  OPR transmitted its final proposal to the Natural Resources Agency on June 25, 2012.  A copy of OPR Director Ken Alex’s transmittal letter to John Laird, California Secretary for Natural Resources, as well as materials associated with the final proposal, are available on OPR’s website.

The Natural Resources Agency will soon commence the formal rulemaking process to adopt the proposed additions.  Those who wish to be involved in the Agency’s process should sign up for the SB 226 listserv here  .

Comments on the January 2012 Update

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research wishes to thank all of those that submitted written comments and participated in the public workshops held in late February 2012. We received input from a broad range of interested stakeholders. Many of the comments submitted during the review period were thoughtful and constructive, and will contribute significantly to an improved draft of the Guidelines proposal. OPR is now reviewing and considering all comments received. A revised proposal will be released for additional review this spring.
