Sample Sustainable Communities Environmental Assessment (SCEA)

Pod

PURPOSE: SACOG developed this sample Sustainable Communities Environmental Assessment (SCEA) to help local governments and project proponents utilize the CEQA streamlining benefits of SB 375 to develop Transit Priority Projects consistent with the MTP/SCS. This sample SCEA was developed with funding in part from the HUD Sustainable Communities Grant Program and the California Strategic Growth Council Grant Program. This sample SCEA tiers off of the Environmental Impact Report for the MTP/SCS for 2035 (SCH # 2011012081) certified April 19, 2012. This sample was based on analysis of an actual project that is not yet approved. As such, certain portions of the document have been redacted. This document may be modified over time.
