All in CEQA Mitigation

Can CEQA Mitigation Measures Be Changed After Project Approval?

CEQA now requires that human health effects be disclosed and that the public is informed of the human health effects associated with a project’s impacts to air quality and emissions. In addition, a California court has allowed for a city to include a substitution clause in the EIR's mitigation measures. In short, public agencies, under certain conditions, may be able to alter mitigation measures down the road without further public review or disclosure.
