The City of Duarte is responsible for implementing the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for projects within the City of Duarte.


The City prepares or oversees the preparation of an environmental assessment for projects that are not exempt from CEQA. This assessment may take the form of a Negative Declaration or Mitigated Negative Declaration for projects that will either have no effect on the environment or can be conditioned to have no impact.


In cases where some form of environmental impact will occur, an Environmental Impact Report is required.
