Environmental Review Documents

Chapter 31 of the SF Administrative Code requires a clear timeline for appeals for California Environmental Quality Act documents. Section 31.04 (h) contains the definitions for the approval action of projects and Section 31.16 outlines the process for appealing determinations. To identify the approval action applied to a specific project, locate the environmental document under these Review Categories:

  • Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs) and Negative Declarations
  • General Plan, Community Plan and Infill Evaluations
  • Area Plan EIRs

To check if a project got Planning Commission approval or if the Planning Department issued a Planning Approval Letter for an entitlement, please visit the San Francisco Property Information Map and search for related documents under a project’s record number(s) for more details.
