Document Description
On December 10, 2019, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Placer approved the Sunset Area Plan and Placer Ranch Specific Plan (SCH #2016112012) and certified the related Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which included programmatic-level environmental analysis of a 301-acre Off- Campus Center to be affiliated with CSU, Sacramento and located within the Placer Ranch Specific Plan area. The Board of Trustees of The California State University is a Responsible Agency with respect to Placer County’s CEQA action as it is a public agency with some discretionary authority over a portion of that project (CEQA Guidelines Section 15381). Specifically, the Board of Trustees is required to satisfy its obligations as a Responsible Agency as to the preliminary site plans and initial phases of infrastructure and facility development on the proposed Off-Campus Center, at the time of approval of the acceptance of the gift of real property from Placer Ranch Inc.
