Title: 22 - Environment

Chapter: 04 - Environmental Guidelines and Procedures

Section: 110 - Statement of overriding considerations

The CEQA requires the lead agency in the decision making process to balance the benefits of a proposed project against its unavoidable environmental risks in determining whether to approve the project. When the lead agency approves a project which allows the occurrence of significant effects identified by the EIR without mitigation, the county must state in writing or in the minutes, the reasons to support its action based on the final EIR and any other information in the record.
