City of Susanville General Plan Update
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Document Description
This Negative Declaration has been prepared to identify and assess if there are any environmental impacts resulting from the City of Susanville’s 2023 General Plan Update. The Initial Study Neg Dec is also intended to assess whether any environmental effects of the project are susceptible to substantial reduction or avoidance by the choice of specific revisions in the project, by the imposition of conditions, or by other means (§ 15152(b)(2) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines). This Negative Declaration relies on State CEQA Guidelines §§ 15064 and 15064.4 in its determination of the significance of environmental effects. According to §15064, the finding as to whether a project may have one or more significant effects shall be based on substantial evidence in the record, and that controversy alone, without substantial evidence of a significant effect, does not trigger the need for an EIR. The project area consists of the entire city of Susanville. Susanville is in the northeastern portion of California, located in Lassen County. Known for its proximity to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Susanville offers a mix of high desert landscapes and alpine environments. The city is located at the head of Honey Lake Valley and sits at an elevation of about 4,186 feet. With the Susan River running through it, Susanville provides a mix of river valleys, pine forests, and mountainous terrain
