Does CEQA Help or Hinder Orange County Homes for Sale?

September 19th, 2016

The natural environment forms just one of the reasons people flock to Orange County. The year-round mild climate and daily sunshine means you rarely have to worry about the weather when you plan outdoor activities.

Yorba Linda is surrounded nature, hiking trails and many parks. Going to the beach is a short drive and the winter ski slopes and evergreen forests of Big Bear Lake are only a couple of hours away.

This coexistence of nature with suburban and urban development doesn’t happen by accident. Strict laws are in place to ensure that the air, trees, and wildlife aren’t overwhelmed by human habitation. Among those rules and regulations is CEQA. 

CEQA

Passed in 1970, the California Environmental Quality Act requires state and local agencies to monitor private or government projects to determine their environmental impacts and to take steps to minimize or eliminate those impacts. This typically requires an initial project review that may turn into an environmental impact review (EIR). Projects may not be approved if its significant environmental impacts can’t be avoided.  Read More >
