recently permitted projects and Environmental review

The Conservancy is oftentimes the Lead Agency for Participating Special Entity projects. Being the Lead Agency means overseeing the environmental review process for all projects requiring a decision to be made at the discretion of the Conservancy's Governing Board. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is the environmental review process for the City, and it provides a means to inform City decision-makers about potential environmental impacts that would result from a project.

The project listed below has been approved by the Conservancy:
