Environmental Documents

CEQA/NEPA

The California Environmental Quality Act of 1970 (CEQA) requires public agencies, such as the Port of Long Beach, to consider the potential environmental impacts of proposed development projects. The objectives of CEQA are:

  1. to disclose to the decision-making body and the public the potential environmental impacts of proposed activities;
  2. to propose feasible alternatives or mitigation measures that avoid, eliminate or reduce project-related environmental effects;
  3. to describe the analytical process which led to the public agency's decision on the project;
  4. to promote interagency coordination when evaluating projects;
  5. to provide a mechanism for increasing public participation in the planning process.

The Port of Long Beach must also comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for projects with federal involvement, such as projects with federal funding or federally issued permits. NEPA is similar to CEQA and requires consideration of potential environmental impacts from projects prior to federal action.

The following tables include all current public notices issued by the Port of Long Beach, in accordance with the requirements of CEQA and NEPA. To view previously approved environmental documents, see our environmental document archive.
