Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 4 Sec. 15304
Reasons for Exemption
This project will be categorically exempt from CEQA due to the fact that only brush or small trees, and those specifically marked by RPF and permitted by TRPA, will be removed. No grading or excavation and only surface movement will occur. Further, there will be no economic usage of removed material. Cut brush will retain its root structure and re-sprout to reduce erosion. No SEZ work in this project. Chipped material will be broadcast, rounds left for free neighborhood firewood.
