Reasons for Exemption
Based on the State CEQA Guidelines, a project may be considered exempt from CEQA if that project consists of: 1) replacement of an existing structure and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced; and b) if the project is characterized as in-fill development that is consistent with an adopted campus master plan. The Peterson Hall 3 Replacement Building replaces an existing science building with a new structure of substantially the same size, purpose and capacity on the same site. The replacement building is consistent with the adopted physical master plan for the University.
