Draft Environmental Impact Report

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), UC San Diego completed a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the La Jolla Campus 2018 LRDP. The Draft EIR circulated for a 45-day public review period from July 30, 2018 through September 12, 2018, during which agencies and the general public were invited to provide comments on the EIR. Responses to all comments received will be included with the Final EIR, which is anticipated to be available in November.
