Policy documents that will affect transportation or air quality/greenhouse gas emissions
Large projects – please see the Large Project Screening Table below
Concerning projects including:
Sites that may need remediation for hydrocarbon contamination
Industrial facility that will be decommissioned
Those with significant operational phase diesel truck activity (e.g. warehouse, distribution center, truck stop, quarry, etc. with 100 truck trips or more per day)
Incompatible mix of land uses, such as the placement of residential units near gasoline stations, nail salons, coffee roasters, paint and spray operations, cannabis processing or masking etc.
Construction of a new school or construction activities with 1,000 feet of an existing school
New development of sensitive receptors within 500 feet of Highway 101 or railroads (4)
Projects whose operation have the potential to emit toxic or hazardous air pollutants and are located within 1,000’ of sensitive receptors
Equestrian or campground facilities within 1,000’ of sensitive receptors
Wineries and all facilities with special events that are accessed by unpaved roads or driveways
Parcel subdivisions that are outside of Urban or Village Reserve Lines in which subdivisions will be less than 20-acres
Land Use Screening Tool
SLO County APCD has also developed a Microsoft Excel tool that will analyze both single land use and mixed land use projects. The user will enter the project’s operational year and the size of the project’s land use components to determine if the overall project emissions are of a scale that may be considered significant. For single or mixed land use projects that do not screen out, the project should be evaluated using CalEEMod.
