The passage of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in 1970 ushered in the era of environmental impact reports in California development. Builders decry the legislation as a means to block or derail development. Environmentalists admit that the law no longer functions as it was intended. Both those in favor and against the legislation note that certainty in the process is the paramount quality currently absent. Metro Investment Report is pleased to present this interview with Fred Keeley, Executive Director of the Planning and Conservation League, in which he addresses PCL’s position on CEQA reform and the need for negotiation between the development and environmental communities in order to realize the certainty in the process that both sides crave.
