Welcome to Site Check
Welcome to the live beta version of Site Check. Your feedback is welcome and will be used to improve the tool for version 1.0, expected in 2021. Please click on "Feedback" to contribute.

The purpose of Site Check is to accelerate the production of housing by facilitating planning decisions and clarifying where existing streamlining options under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) may apply.

Site Check allows users to filter parcels based on specific CEQA provisions or whether the parcels meet certain requirements, like whether they are in an urbanized area, within a certain distance to transit, or covered by a specific plan. Users can also avoid parcels in environmentally sensitive areas like wetlands, natural hazard zones, or flood plains. More information about the underlying data can be found on the "Methods" page.

Once the user has selected all the parcels of interest, a report can be created and downloaded to see the potential accelerated pathways to CEQA compliance that may apply based on the location of the parcels. A Site Check report cannot determine that a project is exempt from CEQA. However, it can provide a helpful starting point and guide users to the appropriate provisions within CEQA.

This tool is focused on the CEQA provisions that cover a variety of housing types. The Legislature has also created specialized provisions for specific types of projects, like affordable housing, agricultural employee housing, and motel-to-supportive housing conversions. Those provisions are detailed on the "Other Resources" page.

Note that other local or state provisions may apply that make a project ministerial or "by right" and therefore not subject to CEQA. Click on Other Resources for more information about this possibility.

Site Check is funded by the California Housing and Community Development Department as part of the technical assistance for Senate Bill 2, the Building Homes and Jobs Act. Site Check is free and open to the public.
