SEPA and NEPA compliance are critical elements of the site-selection process because they harbor the greatest potential for project delay and legal challenge. We reduce the cost and delay of EIS preparation by working closely with technical consultants to determine the appropriate scope of impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures to be included as well as the appropriate detail of the analysis.
Because SEPA and NEPA determinations are legal as well as technical, we work closely with technical consultants in the original design and specifications of an EIS. We have assisted public agencies in avoiding unnecessary SEPA/NEPA compliance expense while maximizing legal defensibility for numerous regional facilities.
We handle every type of project, including universities, school districts, hospitals, ports, and airports, as well as retail stores, shopping centers, residential subdivisions, wireless communication facilities and housing projects, many of which involve the defense of actions in superior court.
