- Richards Ranch Annexation Project – Partial Recirculation of DEIR
- On December 22, 2022, the City of Santa Maria released the DEIR for the Richards Ranch Annexation Project. The DEIR evaluated the environmental impacts associated with the proposed annexation, pre-zoning, and conceptual development of approximately 44-acres of property in the unincorporated area of Santa Barbara County, California. The DEIR public review period ended on March 7, 2023. This is a partial recirculation of the DEIR for Biological Resources, and the Alternatives Analysis. Comments received on the DEIR brought new information to the City’s attention regarding the analyses in Section 4.3, Biological Resources. Adjustments are also warranted to Chapter 5, Alternatives Analysis. The revised biological resources and alternatives analyses in the DEIR are being recirculated for public comment pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the State CEQA Guidelines.
