The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) was passed in 1970 to create a statewide policy of environmental protection. CEQA requires state and local agencies within California to follow a process that informs the public of certain environmental impacts. A part of that process may include filing environmental documents with the County Clerk.
Per Public Resources Code, effective January 1, 2022, notices shall be filed electronically with the County Clerk if that option is offered.
To file by email, send us your notice as follows:
Email your notice to email@example.com with the subject line “CEQA Filing.”
Attach a high-resolution PDF copy of your notice.
Complete submittals received by 1pm will be processed the same business day.
Email submission must be paid by credit card. We will provide the payment link in our reply to your email. Customer is responsible for credit card processing fees. We will not post a notice prior to receiving payment including County Clerk fees.
In addition to filing fees imposed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), the Fresno County Clerk charges a $50 processing fee. All Notices of Exemption and Determination are subject to this processing fee, even filings submitted by government agencies.
Filing Fees are due when environmental documents are filed with the County Clerk’s office.
For current fees and other information relating to environmental filing fees, please visit the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
