Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec 15320
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed changes in the organization of the Panoche Drainage District (PDD) do not change the geographical area in which previously existing powers are exercised. PDD holds 50% interest in the land that is proposed to be included in the reorganization and currently operates it consistent with PDD's existing power in an agricultural capacity. The reorganization will not cause any change in zoning, land use or other environmental parameters, nor will it require any land to be detached from other entities.
