California Environment Quality Act (CEQA) Postings

  • CEQA stands for the California Environmental Quality Act, which is an important law in California aimed at protecting the environment and ensuring transparency in the decision-making process for development projects. It requires public agencies, like the Sunnyvale School District, to assess the potential environmental impacts of their proposed projects and consider alternatives that would minimize these impacts. The district is required to post all CEQA notices on its website to keep the general public informed about upcoming projects and their potential environmental effects. This ensures that community members have access to relevant information and can participate in decision-making by providing their input or raising concerns about the potential impacts on their surroundings. By posting these notices, the district promotes transparency, encourages public involvement, and helps create a more inclusive and sustainable environment for everyone.
