*In accordance with Public Resources Code Section 21092.1 and State California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15088.5, Humboldt County (County), as the Lead Agency is recirculating portions of the North McKay Ranch Subdivision Project Draft EIR (Partial Recirculated Draft EIR) in response to shift in determining the significance of transportation impacts. On May 15, 2020, the County released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for the North McKay Ranch Subdivision Project. The Partial Recirculation was developed in response to changing provisions of the CEQA Guidelines, specifically Section 15064.3 Determining the Significance of Transportation Impacts, which became effective on July 1, 2020. Section 15064.3 was added to the CEQA Guidelines in response to Senate Bill (SB) 743. Because of this shift in determining the significance of transportation impacts, the County has decided to recirculate two environmental impact analysis sections that have been impacted by this shift from LOS to VMT: the Land Use and Planning section and the Transportation section, as well as provide an update to the Project Description.
