A Specific Plan describes the allowable land uses, intensity and supporting infrastructure for a particular geographic area. As part of the approval process for such planning documents, the California Environmental Quality Act (or CEQA) requires an analysis of a wide range of environmental factors, which in this case will be evaluated in an EIR including aesthetics, air quality, biology, cultural resources, energy, geology, greenhouse gasses, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology, water quality, land use, noise, population and housing, public services, recreation, transportation, tribal cultural resources, utilities and services, and wildfire risk . CEQA also requires that the EIR include an assessment of environmental impacts associated with the proposed project and the identification of mitigation measures and alternatives which eliminate or reduce the severity of any significant impacts found to exist.
