AB 2447 (Reyes) California Environmental Quality Act: land use: environmental justice.
|Status:||Vetoed by Governor|
This bill would require the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, by June 30, 2019, to publish a list of subject land uses, as specified, and a map that identifies disadvantaged communities and areas within a 1/2 mile radius of the disadvantaged communities.
The bill would require a lead agency to provide certain notices required by CEQA to owners and occupants of property located within one-half mile of any parcel or parcels, and to any schools located within one mile of any parcel or parcels, on which is located a project involving a subject land use. The bill would require the lead agency to call at least one scoping meeting for those projects, as provided.
The bill would apply these requirements to projects for which environmental review commences on or after July 1, 2019. Because the bill would impose additional duties on a lead agency, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
