What is an EIR?

The California Environmental Quality Act known as CEQA, requires government decision-makers to study the potential environmental effects of proposed developments, identify ways impacts can be avoided or significantly reduced, and seek public input on the environmental studies. The public is invited to review the draft document and provide comments or questions. These will be addressed in the Final EIR, which must be certified by the East Palo Alto City Council.
