- Fresno General Plan Recirculated Draft Program EIR
- The City is updating the existing General Plan Master EIR (MEIR) and converting it to a Program EIR (PEIR) to be in conformance with State law and consistent with recent legislative changes related to Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT). The PEIR includes a current baseline for the continued implementation of the approved General Plan, and reflects changes in City planning documents that have occurred since adoption of the approved General Plan in 2014. The City is not proposing any land use changes as a part of this project, but it does include an update to the City’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan. This update, consistent with Section 15168 of the CEQA Guidelines, is intended to streamline implementation of the General Plan’s programs and projects by supporting them with updated environmental analysis, regulatory framework, and mitigation measures, pursuant to CEQA. The Draft PEIR is being recirculated to address a new significant impact related to VMT.
