Richmond Parole Office Lease
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Richmond Parole Office is doing an emergency move to Concord because their current building is uninhabitable. The Concord location will be occupied under an emergency lease and then turned into a permanent lease. The Parkside Drive facility is zoned for office use and there would be no increase in occupancy or parking over their zoning information.
The project consists of leasing an existing facility involving negligible or no expansion of use (CEQA Guidelines 15301). This is one of a class of projects that the Secretary for Resources has found does not have a significant effect on the environment, and therefore is declared to be categorically exempt from the requirement for preparing an environmental document. None of the exceptions to a notice of exemption apply.
