Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15302
Reasons for Exemption
Project involves replacement of an existing substandard fire station barracks with a modern structure that meets safety and access regulations. The replacement facility will be used for the same purpose as the fire station that has been used during the previous half century. Site preparation activities such as grading and trenching will occur in areas previously disturbed. Native ecosites have already been substantially displaced by existing pavement and exotic landscaping. During waterline replacement, areas covered by (mostly exotic) annual grasses will be cleared, but will revegetate during the following growing season. The activities from this project do not result in the taking of sensitive species or significant erosion or sedimentation of surface waters. There will not be a significant impact to cultural or historic resources.
