The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a California State Law that applies to all discretionary actions. Environmental conditions and regulations often control how and when a property can be Developed or Re-Developed. Engaging this process prior to a Formal Submittal can substantially increase your Approval time.

Here are the most common results:
• Categorical Exemptions
• Mitigated Negative Declarations
• Environmental Impact Report

There are several paths to ensure compliance with CEQA, each with its own timeframe, costs and roster of required consultants. Stafford Realty has an expert team of Biologists, Engineers and Planning Consultants to help you better navigate this regulation process.
