Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
S:15378(b)(4); other
Reasons for Exemption
Adoption of an Impact Fee Program is (1) not a Project under CEQA and is therefore exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378 (b)(4); (2) statutorily exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15273(4) (Rates, tolls, fares and charges for obtaining funds for capital projects necessary to maintain service within existing service area); (3) not intended to apply to specific capital improvement projects and as such it would be speculative to evaluate such projects now and any specifically identified transportation projects were already evaluated under CEQA and imposed as mitigation measures in previously certified EIRs and/or adopted mitigated negative declarations; and/or (4) not intended to, nor does it, provide CEQA clearance for future development-related projects by mere payment of the fees. Each of the foregoing provides a separate and independent basis for CEQA compliance and when viewed collectively provides an overall basis for CEQA compliance.
