California Environmental Quality Act Compliance

The California Environmental Quality Act requires an independent, objective review and analysis of any development project.  Its purpose is to determine whether the project could cause a significant physical impact on the environment. Successfully navigating this process is critical to keep the entitlement process on track.  Reuben, Junius & Rose, LLP has extensive experience in CEQA compliance, whether that means obtaining a categorical exemption for a small project, assisting with the scoping of an initial study that results in a negative declaration, or preparing a full environmental impact report.

The firm works with a variety of environmental consultants, as well as works closely with the professional CEQA staff at the Planning Department’s Major Environmental Analysis Division to ensure that the project complies with all applicable CEQA laws and regulations and that the Planning Department prepares a sound and legally defensible CEQA document.
