Environmental Review
  • Environmental Review

    Determining whether a development project will create an environmental impact is an important part of the development approval process. The City of Fremont Planning Division currently processes Environmental Impact Assessments for most projects within the City.

    Depending on the scope of the project and its anticipated impacts, one or more of the following documents
    may have to be prepared:
  • Exemption - CEQA identifies that certain projects are not subject to environmental review based on the particular type or category of proposed project. Exemptions are commonly referred to as Statutory or Categorical Exemptions.
  • Initial Study - A preliminary analysis prepared to determine whether a negative declaration or environmental impact report should be prepared
  • Negative Declaration - Statement that the project will not have or can be prevented from having a significant adverse impact on the environment
  • Environmental Impact Report (EIR) - Detailed report that identifies potentially significant impacts which may include significant and unavoidable impacts of the project

Decisions about environmental impacts are governed by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Please review the documents below for information on each environmental review.

The following documents are provided for public review (Section 15087 of the CEQA Guidelines).  Technical appendices for the following environmental documents can be made available upon request by contacting the Project Planner.
