Part 2 - Impact Assessment. The Lead Agency is responsible for the completion of Part 2. Answer all of the following
questions in Part 2 using the information contained in Part 1 and other materials submitted by the project sponsor or
otherwise available to the reviewer. When answering the questions the reviewer should be guided by the concept “Have my
responses been reasonable considering the scale and context of the proposed action?”
No, or
small
impact
may
occur
Moderate
to large
impact
may
occur
1. Will the proposed action create a material conflict with an adopted land use plan or zoning
regulations?
2. Will the proposed action result in a change in the use or intensity of use of land?
3. Will the proposed action impair the character or quality of the existing community?
4. Will the proposed action have an impact on the environmental characteristics that caused the
establishment of a Critical Environmental Area (CEA)?
5. Will the proposed action result in an adverse change in the existing level of traffic or
affect existing infrastructure for mass transit, biking or walkway?
6. Will the proposed action cause an increase in the use of energy and it fails to incorporate
reasonably available energy conservation or renewable energy opportunities?

10. Will the proposed action result in an increase in the potential for erosion, flooding or drainage
problems?
11. Will the proposed action create a hazard to environmental resources or human health?
Part 3 - Determination of significance. The Lead Agency is responsible for the completion of Part 3. For every
question in Part 2 that was answered “moderate to large impact may occur”, or if there is a need to explain why a particular
element of the proposed action may or will not result in a significant adverse environmental impact, please complete Part 3.
Part 3 should, in sufficient detail, identify the impact, including any measures or design elements that have been included by
the project sponsor to avoid or reduce impacts. Part 3 should also explain how the lead agency determined that the impact
may or will not be significant. Each potential impact should be assessed considering its setting, probability of occurring,
duration, irreversibility, geographic scope and magnitude. Also consider the potential for short-term, long-term and
cumulative impacts.
