Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status

Reasons for Exemption
The proposed Community Garden is exempt because it is located on an in-fill site that previously contained an agricultural packing shed that was demolished in 2013. The project site has historically been used for industrial operations and is not suitable habitat for any threatened or endangered species. Additionally the proposed project will not adversely impact the general health, safety and wellbeing of the citizens of McFarland.
