3. DISCUSSION (Workshop)
Subject: Public Review Draft Housing Element
Project Description: The purpose of the workshop is to introduce the Public Review Draft Housing Element to the Planning Commission and community and to obtain input. No official action will be taken at this meeting.
Environmental Determination: The workshop discussion does not qualify as a project pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) Guidelines Section 15378(b)(5) that states that organizational or administrative activities of governments that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment are not projects. Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15060(c)(3) any activity that is not a project is not subject to environmental review under CEQA. Adoption of the Housing Element itself is a project pursuant to CEQA at which time the appropriate level of CEQA review will be conducted.
