Announcing CEQA Chronicles

A Blog Focusing on Environmental Review Under the California Environmental Quality Act

CEQA practice is constantly changing, raising myriad questions for project applicants, lead agencies, and project opponents.  How should greenhouse gas emissions be quantified?  What are the ramifications of the shift from level of service (LOS) to vehicle miles travelled (VMT) in analyzing transportation impacts?  Which CEQA cases have just been decided by the courts, and what impact will those decisions have?  How will proposed CEQA legislation change the rules?  Attorneys, planning professionals, and consultants need to keep current with the ever-evolving CEQA landscape – both to ensure compliance and to plan for potential litigation when compliance becomes a contested issue.

Our goal is to provide you with timely information and analysis concerning key CEQA developments.  Whenever there is an important change in CEQA practice – whether as a result of an appellate court decision, new legislation, or revisions to the Guidelines – we’ll keep you updated via our blog, CEQA Chronicles.

The blog is authored by Kathryn Oehlschlager, Christian Marsh, and Arielle Harris.  Visit CEQA Chronicles and if you would like to receive future blog posts, please subscribe.
