Mayor Proposes Exempting CEQA from All Homeless Housing Projects

Mayor Eric Garcetti has proposed a resolution that all homeless housing projects be exempt from providing CEQA in support of AB1197.

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) provides a process for evaluating the environmental effects of a project including but not limited to water quality, land use and agricultural resources, transportation and circulation, air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.

This would exempt all Measure HHH bond projects and emergency shelter projects funded by the Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP) and SEEK amendment from CEQA requirements.
