Consideration & Approval of Negative Declaration by Decision
1. Consideration of negative declaration prior to approval
Prior to approving a project, the decision-making body shall consider
the proposed negative declaration or mitigated negative declaration
together with any comments received during the public review process.
The decision-making body can adopt the negative declaration only
if it finds there is no substantial evidence that the project
will have a significant effect on the environment.
3. The Record
The lead agency is to specify the location of the documents and
materials consituting the record.
When adopting a mitigated negative declaration, the lead agency
must also adopt a program for reporting or monitoring the changes
it has required or made conditional on approval.
