Public Review of a Negative Declaration
A proposed ND and Initial Study should be submitted to the State Clearinghouse for review by state agencies and the public .
The review period shall not be less than 30 days, unless a shorter period is approved by the State Clearinghouse.
Re-Circulation of a Negative Declaration Prior to Adoption
A lead agency is required to re-circulate a ND via the State Clearinghouse when the document must be substantially revised after the public review and comment period.
A “substantial revision” of the ND means:
- A new, avoidable, significant effect is identified, and mitigation measures or project revisions must be added in order to reduce the effect to insignificance, or
- The lead agency determines that the proposed mitigation measures or project revisions will not reduce potential effects to less than significance, and new measures or revisions must be required
