Environmental Impact Report

The California Environmental Quality Act requires the City to prepare an Environmental Impact Report (or EIR) on the General Plan.  The EIR documents the potential environmental impacts of the General Plan and informs the City Council, Planning Commission, and general public of these potential impacts.  Were applicable, mitigation measures may be identified to reduce the potential impact to a less than significant level.  

The EIR is made up of several documents, which are:

  • The Draft EIR, which is prepared and circulated for public comment.
  • The Final EIR, which includes responses to comments on the Draft EIR and an errata list of changes to the EIR.
  • The Findings of Fact and Statement of Overriding Considerations
  • A Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program

The Climate Action Plan identifies how the City will achieve State-recommended targets of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The Climate Action Plan, or CAP, was first adopted in 2013 and has been updated concurrently with the General Plan Update.

Transportation Analysis Guidelines

The Transportation Analysis Guidelines present a clear and consistent technical approach to transportation analysis for projects within Elk Grove.  They implement the General Plan policies for mobility and circulation by providing instructions for the preparation of transportation analysis.  This document replaces the prior Traffic Impact Study Guidelines.
