  • 12-10-19  The Environmental Management Office has updated the Annotated Outlines (AOs) to include various updates and to reflect recent changes to the CEQA Guidelines.  A summary of the changes and grandfathering guidelines has been posted.  The ED Review Checklist has also been updated to reflect changes made to the AOs.

    In order to improve efficiency, the required text for the Climate Change section for ISs and EIRs has been relocated and can now be found as two separate Climate Change AOs, one for capacity increasing projects and one for non-capacity increasing projects.  Please choose the outline most appropriate for your project and include in your environmental document.

    All of the above mentioned files can be found on the SER Forms and Templates page.

    In addition, Chapter 13 of the SER, Energy, has been updated to reflect recent changes to the CEQA Guidelines.
