Document Description
The project is a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) for the City of Irvine (City). The CAAP will layout pathways for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapting to current and future climate hazards. It will address both City government operations and community-wide activities. The CAAP will quantify existing and future levels of GHG emissions resulting from activities in Irvine, and establish City-specific targets for reducing GHG emissions to levels in alignment with reduction targets identified in State laws and adopted plans. The CAAP will identify quantifiable measures and associated implementation actions that would reduce GHG emissions to levels that meet or exceed the City-specific GHG reduction targets. The CAAP will also identify current and future climate hazards in Irvine, assess the vulnerability to each hazard, and set forth adaptation strategies to reduce vulnerability to the hazards and enhance climate resilience in Irvine. The CAAP is anticipated to be used for future project-specific environmental documents by being prepared consistent with the tiering and streamlining provisions of CEQA Guidelines Section 15183.5. The Program EIR will provide the appropriate level of environmental review to allow future projects that are consistent with the CAAP to tier from and streamline their analysis of GHG emissions pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15183.5(b)(2).
