Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
General Rule [Section 15061(b)(3)] The approval of these amendments does not approve any development project. The proposed changes to Title 23 modify and clarify the various planning permits and entitlements, clarify the allowed uses in the various zoning districts consistent with the General Plan, and clarify other development regulations including density bonus, fences and walls, parking, signs, and care facilities, and home occupations. The proposed rezonings are being completed for consistency with the General Plan land use map and no specific development is being proposed. Subsequent development is subject to discretional design review and/or use permit. The changes to the Citywide Design Guidelines provide flexibility for future development applications but do not alter the specific design requirements and provisions required for new development. Finally, the proposed General Plan amendments correct the rezoning consistency table based upon prior Zoning Code edits include retitling two districts and eliminating one district. It also adds a specific reference to a zone consistent with an existing footnote. The proposed General Plan Map Amendments (1) reflect encumbrances by preservation easements and (2) provide a consistent General Plan designation across an existing integrated development, providing for uniform development regulations.
