NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This project, to be carried out by the City of Los Banos, involves the planting of 1,000 along an abandoned railroad corridor that is being converted to a public trail (Rail Trail), another site of a new bike trail going out to Merced College Campus, and along two streets near to the Rail Trail. It is anticipated that this project will commence planting trees from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2009. Trees will be native and non-native ornamentals that have been selected for their disease resistance, adaptation to the urban landscape, shade capacity, and minimal litter production. Trees planted will be of an appropriate container size for the location, and all trees will be planted, staked and tied, watered and maintained in accordance with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's tree planting guidelines.

Reasons for Exemption
This project involves minor alterations to land and vegetation including the planting of new landscaping trees. As this is a heavily disturbed urban environment there is a low likelihood of impacting any significant biological resources. CDF's staff have reviewed this project and determined that there is no cultural or historic resources present in the project vicinity. CDF finds that the proposed activities will pose a less than significant impact to the environment including cultural, historic and biological resources.
