Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This project is exempt under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Categorical Exemption Class 1 - Existing Facilities. This exemption applies to the minor alteration of existing public facilities involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination (CEQA Guidelines Section 15301). The proposed improvements would include minor alteration of the existing roadway and sidewalk to allow for pedestrian crossing, and would involve negligible expansion of existing uses. No special circumstances exist that would create a reasonable possibility that the proposed project will have a significant adverse effect on the environment. Therefore the project qualifies for a Class 1 exemption and no further environmental review is required.
