On July 29, 2014 the Richmond City Council approved certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report and applications for a Conditional Use Permit and Design Review Permit, as well as an Environmental and Community Investment Agreement, for the Chevron Refinery Modernization Project.
The City of Richmond and Chevron agreed to an Environmental and Community Investment Agreement (ECIA), which will provide $90 million dollars to the Richmond community over the next ten years. This includes investments in community programs, competitive community grants, community-based greenhouse gas reduction programs and a photovoltaic solar farm. The initial ECIA ("initial ECIA") was adopted by the Richmond City Council on July 29, 2014. The City Council adopted the current amended ECIA ("current amended ECIA") on December 15, 2015.
