Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15325, 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The public access easements are intended to be kept in a natural condition with only minor ancillary improvements to facilitate public use, or to serve as public open spaces. The transfer of easements is therefore categorically exempt from the CEQA pursuant to 14 Cal. Code of Regulations Section 15325 because it is a transfer of ownership of interest in land in order to preserve open space or to preserve existing natural conditions. Funding for the ongoing operation and maintenance of an existing access easement is categorically exempt from CEQA review pursuant to 14 Cal. Code of Regulations Section 15301, since it consists of the operation, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of use.
