Document Description
This CalVTP PEIR addresses the following: • Expansion of CAL Fl RE's vegetation treatment activities to reach a total treatment acreage target of approximately 250,000 acres per year to contribute to the achievement of the 500,000 annual non-federal acres expressed in Executive Order (EO) 8-52-18, signed by former Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. in May 2018. • A project specific implementation approach for streamlining CEQA review of later site-specific, vegetation treatment projects consistent with the CalVTP and this PEIR, in accordance with procedures described in CEQA Guidelines Section 15168. The streamlined CEQA review approach would document the extent to which an individual proposed treatment project's environmental effects · are covered by the PEIR and which feasible mitigation measures from the CalVTP PEIR would be incorporated into the approval of the individual project. More specifically, this project-specific review would include evaluation under section 15168 of whether later activities and impacts· of site-specific vegetation treatment projects are within the scope of the CalVTP and the PEIR. A "within the scope" finding for later activities would facilitate an increase in the pace and scale of project approvals in a manner that includes environmental protections in compliance with CEQA. Where later proposed vegetation treatment projects do not qualify for a "within the scope" finding, additional CEQA documentation would be prepared.
