An Environmental Impact Statement is required for larger projects with potential enviromental impacts (those that do not recieve a Negative Declaration – see EAS). The purpose of an EIS is to enable the public and decision-makers to understand the nature and consequences of specific environmental impacts that can be anticipated as a result of the proposed action. An EIS is issued first as a Draft Scope of Work and then a Draft EIS, typically at the same time as certification, with a Final EIS released prior to the City Planning Commission vote (see ULURP).
