Written Comments, Questions and Answers received during the October 28, 2020 Online Engagement Panel Webinar Meeting:
Question for State Lands: Is there a cost /benefit analysis carried out during CEQA associated with the complete or partial removal of the breakwater? Will the large expenditure of energy be considered?
Response 1 - Under current plans, the County and not State Lands will be the Lead Agency for CEQA purposes. State Lands will act as a responsible agency and rely upon the County's CEQA document. Looking at CEQA generally, the analysis is required to look at environmental impacts and environmental benefits. Economic feasibility is also factored into the analysis, particularly related to mitigation. Energy consumption is also considered in CEQA analysis.
