Join Supervisor Scott Wiener for an overview of the new California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA reforms) reforms.
On July 16th, the Board of Supervisors passed Supervisor Wiener’s CEQA Appeals legislation, which establishes, for the first time, a clear deadline for CEQA appeals, prevents multiple appeals from being filed on the same project, and no longer allows projects to be appealed mid-construction. Passage of this legislation is a big step forward for San Francisco bringing long-overdue predictability and transparency to the often chaotic CEQA appeals process. This was the fourth attempt by a supervisor to attempt this legislation in 10 years.
Supervisor Wiener’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
