Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301
Reasons for Exemption
This project consists of repairs and minor alterations of an existing structure involving negligible or no expansion of use (CEQA Guidelines 15301). The cell-front project is one of a class of projects the Secretary for Resources has found do not have a significant effect on the environment, and therefore is declared to be categorically exempt from the requirement for preparing an environmental document. The project does not involve the use of any significant amounts of hazardous substances; during demolition, any lead- and asbestos-contaminated materials will be safely removed and properly disposed of.
