Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
S:15308,15321, Class 8, 21
Reasons for Exemption
The Ordinance is not a project as defined in section 15378, and will not result in a direct/indirect physical change to the environment. If considered a project the ordinance still may be found exempt as it can be seen with certainty that it would result in a significant effect on the environment. Additionally, the Ordinance qualifies for use of the cited categorical exemptions as it includes provisions for specialized enforcement pursuant to established nuisance criteria, and will assure greater protection of the environment than continuance under the status quo / baseline regulatory condition.
