Historical and archeological resources enjoy special and complex rules under both the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) when new development projects are proposed. This one-day program provides a comprehensive overview of the treatment of cultural (historical and archeological) resources under these two environmental impact assessment laws, including important distinctions in requirements between the two laws. Topics include cultural resources subject to CEQA and NEPA; the role of CEQA and NEPA in requiring the evaluation and protection of cultural resources; responsibilities of lead agencies, California's State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), and other agencies in evaluating cultural resources; what makes impacts "significant"; evaluating and mitigating impacts--what is adequate and what is not; other historic preservation laws, including Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act; and key court decisions related to cultural resources.
