Revised Infill Streamlining Guidelines (SB 226)

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) is pleased to announce that it has released a revised draft of updates to the CEQA Guidelines addressing streamlining for infill development pursuant to SB 226 (Simitian, 2011).

Many stakeholders provided helpful feedback and suggestions for improvement to the preliminary discussion draft released in late January. The revised proposal reflects many of those comments as well as OPR’s continued research on issues raised during this update process.

Revisions to Proposed Section 15183.3 and Proposed Appendices M and N, along with a summary and responses to comments, are available on OPR’s website: http://opr.ca.gov/s_sb226.php.

OPR invites public comment on the proposed revisions until June 1, 2012.

We encourage electronic submission of your comments, which may be e-mailed to CEQA.Guidelines@ceres.ca.gov.

Comments may also be mailed or hand delivered to:
CEQA Guidelines Update, c/o Christopher Calfee, 1400 Tenth Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.
