Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15304
Reasons for Exemption
The shooting range was graded in the mid to late 1970's (personal communication with Fire Prevention Battalion Chief Larry Grafft, June 28, 2006). The present surface is a combination of imported gravel, concrete strips, and non-native grass-covered soil. Other than capping the area that supports non-native grass, no vegetation removal (herbaceous or woody) is required. This minor project does not propose to remove mature or scenic trees or other woody vegetation. The current setting is a highly disturbed area from prior implementation and continued maintenance for the purpose of on-going use as a shooting range for CDF peace officers.
