  • Notices filed by agencies of the availability of EAs and appropriate addendum documents for review and comments.
  • Notices filed by agencies of determinations that EISs are required or not required.
  • The availability of EISs, supplemental EISs, and appropriate addendum documents for review and comments.
  • The acceptance or non-acceptance of EISs.
  • Other notices required by the rules of the Environmental Council.
  • A public comment process or public hearing if a federal agency provides for the public comment process or public hearing to process a habitat conservation plan, safe harbor agreement, or incidental take license pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act.
  • A proposed habitat conservation plan or proposed safe harbor agreement, and availability for inspection of the proposed agreement, plan, and application to enter into a planning process for the preparation and implementation of the habitat conservation plan for public review and comment.
  • A proposed incidental take license as part of a habitat conservation plan or safe harbor agreement.
  • An application for the registration of land by accretion for any land accreted along the ocean.
In addition, the OEQC may opt to publish other information on a space and capacity available basis.
