Streamlining Decision-Making to Advance Affordable Housing in California

The Site Check tool is to accelerate the production of housing by facilitating planning decisions and clarifying where existing streamlining options under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) may apply. It allows users to filter parcels based on specific CEQA provisions or whether the parcels meet certain requirements, like whether they are in an urbanized area, within a certain distance to transit, or covered by a specific plan. Users can also avoid parcels in environmentally sensitive areas like wetlands, natural hazard zones, species habitat, prime agricultural lands, flood plains, etc.
