General Counsel’s Comments:

 

The Office of the General Counsel has reviewed this agenda sheet, as presented to it and approves the same as to form and legality.

 

Environmental Review:

 

The proposed Board action, including without limitation, election of the chairman, vice chair, and Secretary of the Board of Port Commissioners of the Personnel Advisory Board, does not constitute a “project” under the definition set forth in California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15378 because it will not have a potential to result in a direct or indirect physical change in the environment and is, therefore, not subject to CEQA. No further action under CEQA is required.

 

The proposed Board action complies with Section 35 of the Port Act, which allows the Board to do all acts necessary and convenient for the exercise of its powers. The Port Act was enacted by the California Legislature and is consistent with the Public Trust Doctrine. Consequently, the proposed Board action is consistent with the Public Trust Doctrine.

 

The proposed Board action does not allow for “development,” as defined in Section 30106 of the California Coastal Act, or “new development,” pursuant to Section 1.a. of the District’s Coastal Development Permit Regulations. Therefore, issuance of a Coastal Development Permit or exclusion is not required.

 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Program:

 

No direct DEI impact.
