Document Description
The City of Needles is in the process of applying for an enterprise zone. A preliminary boundary map that is within the city limits under consideration and predominately involves distributed/infill areas of the city. Therefore, a majority of what is being contemplated will be eligible for an exemption under CEQA. The balance of the projected development will be subject to further environmental evaluation on a project by project basis and if the impacts can not be mitigated to a level of less than significant an EIR will be required.
