CSUMB Building 59 Renovation

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project entails the renovation of an existing Fort Ord era building into an academic building for educational purposes. The project includes demolishing and reframing all interior walls, and installing new electrical, mechanical, HVAC, fire sprinklers, and fire alarm features. Existing windows will be removed and replaced with new exterior windows. The existing restrooms will be remodeled to provide ADA compliant facilities. Demolition will result in emissions of dust, which will vary day to day depending on the level of activity, the specific operations, and the prevailing weather. To reduce the potential impact of dust emissions, the campus will insure, through construction contract conditions, that the following recommended control measures are implemented as necessary. - Watering disturbed (graded or excavated) surfaces as necessary, increasing frequency when weather conditions require, - Covering all trucks hauling soil, sand, and other loose materials or requiring all trucks to maintain at least two feet freeboard, - Sweeping all paved access roads, parking areas and staging areas with water sweepers, - Sweeping streets with water sweepers if visible soil material is carried onto adjacent public streets, - Enclosing, covering, watering twice daily, or applying non-toxic soil binders to exposed stockpiles, - Installing sandbags or other erosion control measures to prevent silt runoff to public roadways. In addition, a Hazardous Materials report will be prepared by a hazardous material consultant and the applicant will be required to comply with the recommendations of the report as well as all local, state, and federal regulations.

Reasons for Exemption
This project is exempt from all requirements of CEQA. The Class 3 categorical exemption includes projects consisting of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structures. Potential environmental impacts resulting from campus build-out were addressed in the CSUMB Master Plan Update SEIR (2004) and mitigation measures were identified to avoid or reduce impacts. The building renovation project is consistent with the existing CSUMB Master Plan land use designation and will be required to comply with the Master Plan Update (2004) policies. The project site does not contain any habitat for any endangered, rare, or threatened species. The renovation and operation of proposed academic building (Building 59) will not result in any adverse environmental impacts including those related in traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality due to the implementation of the conditions within the project description.
