|Description||This Handbook provides guidance on the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). We have included information on the history and purpose of SEPA and its relationship with other associated environmental law. We have provided explanations of the purpose and importance of each step in the SEPA process, and tips on how to best complete them.
The 2003 updates include: (1) corrections, including new phone numbers and internet addresses; (2) an expanded section on categorical exemptions, including
information on the 2003 SEPA amendment that allows cities and counties to create categorical exemptions for residential and mixed use infill; and (3) additional court case summaries.
