Environmental Impact Report

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), UC San Diego completed an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed LJIC Project. The Draft EIR was circulated for a 45-day public review period from February 5 through March 22, 2021. During this time, agencies and the general public were invited to review and provide comments on the adequacy of the Draft EIR.

An online public hearing on the Draft EIR was held on Thursday, February 25. UC San Diego’s responses to all comments received during the review period or at the hearing are included in the Final EIR.

In accordance with established University of California (UC) procedures, the UC Regents certified the Final EIR and approved the LJIC Project, including the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, at their May 2021 meeting. Details on the Regents meeting
