Placer County Environmental Document Publishing Moving to All-Digital Format

May 08, 2024 03:01PM ● By County of Placer News Release

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - Placer County will no longer print paper copies of environmental review documents that have traditionally been available at county offices and libraries for public review. The county will transition to an all-electronic publishing format beginning May 15.

The change will help Placer County reduce the use of paper, reduce costs and potentially speed up the release of important documents.

Placer County residents interested in reviewing California Environmental Quality Act documents - including negative declarations, mitigated negative declarations, notices of preparation/initial study checklists, draft environmental impact reports and final environmental impact reports – can access them on the Environmental Coordination Services page on the county’s website.

The documents can also be accessed via computer kiosks at Community Development Resource Agency offices in Auburn and Tahoe, the county Clerk-Recorder’s offices in Rocklin and Auburn, and at all county libraries. 

Hard copies can be purchased from Environmental Coordination Services. The current cost is 50 cents for the first page and 25 cents for each additional page printed.
