SF Planning and CEQA
Project Application to SF Planning Department and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Process
After nearly two years of community outreach and with guidance provided by the Potrero Yard Neighborhood Working Group (consisting of 13 community members and two Muni operators), the SFMTA submitted a project application to the SF Planning Department in November 2019 for the project described above. The project application establishes a set of parameters (e.g.. building mass, height, and number of residential units) that are the basis for evaluating the project’s potential environmental impacts through CEQA.
The CEQA process requires an environmental review of the project. This review is assembled into a document, known as an Environmental Impact Report or EIR. The EIR will include information about the project, alternatives to the project, the project’s potential environmental impacts, and how any impacts may be avoided or mitigated.
