California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Streamlining for Infill Projects

Background

The infill streamlining provisions of CEQA were adopted in compliance with Senate Bill (SB) 226 (Simitian, 2011). SB 226 was developed by the California State Legislature to address uncertainty and delay by creating a new streamlining mechanism in CEQA for infill projects that promote a specific set of environmental policy objectives. The broad purposes of SB 226 are two-fold:

  1. Provide flexibility in project design bby basing eligibility on environmental performance rather than prescribing specific project characteristics; and
  2. Allow infill projects to avoid repetitive environmental analysis of environmental effects that were previously analyzed in a prior Environmental Impact Report for a planning-level decision.
