City of Irvine CEQA Manual
CEQA is a state statutory scheme that requires public agencies to study and identify potentially significant environmental impacts of proposed projects and avoid or reduce those impacts to a level of insignificance, to the extent feasible.
The City of Irvine CEQA Manual includes procedures for environmental review, including the Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Impact Analysis Guidelines in accordance with Senate Bill 743 (refer to Appendix I of Volume 3). The comprehensive update to the CEQA Manual was approved by the City Council on June 23, 2020.
