Environmental Review

As required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), passed by the California Legislature in 1970, the City of Half Moon Bay conducts environmental review of public and private projects before they are heard for approval. The environmental documents produced by the City are provided to both decision makers and the public for their consideration and comment. These environmental documents include Initial Studies/Negative Declarations (IS/NDs and Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs).



The purpose of a biological assessment is to evaluate the potential effects of the action on listed and proposed species and designated and proposed critical habitat and determine whether any such species or habitat are likely to be adversely affected by the action.
