Attention! The deadline for Consultant List Renewal Applications has been extended indefinitely.
The extended deadline applies to the following subject areas: Agricultural Resources, Air Quality, Archaeological Resources, Biological Resources, EIR Preparer, Fire Protection Planning, Groundwater, Historic Resources, Mineral Resources, Noise, Revegetation Planning, Traffic and Transportation and Visual Analysis.
The Department has received numerous comments regarding the renewal fee for the County’s CEQA Consultant List. As a result, the Department is re-evaluating the renewal application fee as part of the comprehensive County Fee Ordinance update.
How does this affect your standing on the consultant list and the status of your application?
- Your standing on County of San Diego CEQA Consultant Lists will remain in effect until completion of the renewal application process.
- The Department will refund any renewal fees already paid by consultants to date. Consultants applying for renewal will need to pay the renewal fee that is in effect once the comprehensive County Fee Ordinance update is completed.
- The Department will provide notice to the renewing Consultants of the new fee.
Listed consultants who do not submit a renewal application package, including the associated consultant application fee, will be removed from the applicable consultant list. A letter detailing the application requirements was previously sent to all listed consultants.
