Public Workshops: CEQA Guidelines Update

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has been in the process of updating its CEQA
Guidelines over the last 14 months. In addition to hosting workshops designed for local
government staff, the Air District is hosting public workshops for community and business groups, consultants, and other interested stakeholders to learn more about the proposed updates and related tools and resources being developed.

At the public workshops, Air District staff will:

for greenhouse gas and toxics emissions.

• Review proposed quantification methodologies
and mitigation strategies.

• Discuss tools being developed to assist lead
agencies in assessing project impacts.

• Provide specific case studies for applying the
recommended thresholds to land use projects.

Note: RSVP or registration is not required.
