Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code

Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project consists of the construction and placement of minor structures appurtenant to existing industrial facilities (a photovoltaic system installed over proposed carports to generate electricity for use on site or sold to smud) with a minor change in land use limitations (deviation from NPA setback requirements), and is therefore exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
