Cultural Resources Evaluation in CEQA
Presented by Glenn Russell on Thursday, October 29, 2020
The Society for California Archaeology (SCA) has developed guidance for planners, consultants, and others on how to evaluate the significance of and potential impacts to cultural resources in CEQA review of proposed development projects.
This guidance was the subject of an online Zoom training on Thursday, October 29. The training focuses on how to complete the section of the CEQA Initial Study that focuses on cultural resources, including archaeological, historic built environment, and tribal cultural resources. In addition, the training provides guidance on a suggested format and content for CEQA technical reports on cultural resources. This training is relevant for all CEQA practitioners but is particularly relevant to people with less experience conducting CEQA analysis of cultural resources. The training is presented by Dr. Glenn S. Russell, current Southern Vice President of the SCA and Planning Director (retired) for the County of Santa Barbara. Copies of guidance documents will be provided.
