CEQA Guidelines Update

City of Camarillo’s
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines

On May 27, 2020, the City Council of the City of Camarillo adopted updates to the City’s California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Environmental Guidelines and Thresholds of Significance as they pertain to the City of Camarillo’s unique geography, character, and composition. The City’s CEQA Environmental Guidelines and Thresholds of Significance are used to evaluate a project’s potential impact to the environment, based on criteria that is applicable to the City of Camarillo in compliance with CEQA statutes. The updated CEQA Environmental Guidelines and Thresholds of Significance will help to streamline environmental review of projects while evaluating their impacts to the established standards of the City, providing a profile of the project’s impacts as they specifically relate to the City of Camarillo.

The City’s CEQA Environmental Guidelines and Thresholds of Significance were reviewed by the Planning Commission at a public hearing on May 5, 2020 and the Planning Commission adopted a resolution recommending approval of the proposed guidelines to the City Council. The City Council then reviewed and adopted the City’s CEQA Environmental Guidelines and Thresholds of Significance at a public hearing on May 27, 2020.

A copy of the City's updated CEQA Environmental Guidelines can be viewed below, and copies are available for review at City Hall, located at 601 Carmen Drive.
