The City of San Diego Entitlements Division has prepared Draft Revisions to the Significance Thresholds under the California Environmental Quality Act and is inviting your comments regarding them. The public review period will be thirty days from the posting of this notice and will close on 5/15/2010. The Draft Revisions to the Significance Threshold document is available under the heading CEQA: Significance Determination Thresholds on the City of San Diego's website: http://www.sandiego.gov/development-services/pdf/thresholds.pdf
Your comments must be received no later than May 15, 2010.

General Information:
The purpose of the Significance Thresholds are to guide applicants, staff, professionals, and consultants in determining whether a project may have a significant effect on the environmental based on substantial evidence during the early stages of environmental analysis, therefore requiring the preparation of technical documents and/or mitigation measures. They provide technical guidance in evaluating the potential significance of a project's environmental impact and provide for a consistent and objective basis for determining the level of impacts. They are not used for project permit conditions or as guidelines on how to prepare technical documents. The following sections of the Significance Thresholds under the California Environmental Quality Act are under revision: Health and Safety, Paleontology and Public Services and Utilities (Solid Waste Generation/Disposal). The Health and Safety section is being revised to: update links to bulletins and websites, update nomenclature and informational references, improve format and sentence structure, and to update CEQA citations. The Paleontology section is being revised to: update technical nomenclature, improve format and sentence structure, and to remove outdated informational links. The Public Services and Utilities (Solid Waste Generation/Disposal) section is being revised to: remove the reference to Assembly Bill 939, improve format and sentence structure, and to bring the section up to date with current requirements of the California Public Resources Code and City of San Diego's Municipal Code. The proposed changes to the Significance Thresholds are considered minor in nature in that the amendments only clarify concepts, improve format and organization, and update the Thresholds to include current local and State requirements.
A public workshop shall be held on the amendments to the Significance Thresholds if requested in writing before the effective date. At the public workshop, the City Manager will consider all written comments and objections of those individuals or groups affected by the amendments. Following the public workshop, the City Manager will approve, modify or reject the proposed changes.
