Will C Wood Stadium Project Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR)

California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires that discretionary decisions by public agencies be subject to environmental review. The purpose of an environmental impact report (EIR) is to identify the significant effects of the project on the environment, to identify alternatives to the project, and to indicate the manner in which those significant effects can be mitigated or avoided (Section 21002.1[a]).

Each public agency is required to mitigate or avoid the significant effects on the environment of projects it approves or carries out whenever it is feasible. This Draft EIR has been prepared by the Vacaville Unified School District (District) as the Lead Agency for the Will C. Wood High School Stadium Project (project) pursuant to the CEQA Statute (California Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq.) and the CEQA Guidelines (California Administrative Code Section 15000 et seq.). Environmental effects of the project that must be addressed include the significant effects of the project, growth-inducing effects of the project, and significant cumulative effects of past, present, and reasonably anticipated future projects. This EIR is a project EIR. A Preferred Project, a 4,000-seat high school track and field complex (i.e., stadium) is evaluated in detail in this EIR in Chapters 3.0 and 4.0. Other alternatives included in the EIR, such as the No Project and Reduced Capacity alternatives, are evaluated at a lower level of detail in Chapter 6.

California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)

The California Environmental Quality Act is California's most important environmental law. It requires state, local and other agencies subject to the jurisdiction of California to evaluate the environmental implications of their actions. Furthermore, it aims to prevent environmental effects of the agency actions by requiring agencies to avoid or reduce, when feasible, the significant environmental impacts of their decisions.
