Streetcar Schedule Milestones
The currently proposed alignment for the streetcar line requires additional environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Federal funding would trigger the need for review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). However, because the project was previously evaluated in an Environmental Impact Rerport, and the project would be designed to minimize impacts (including limiting right-of-way acquisition), a more focused and streamlined environmental review is anticipated.
