Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Cal. Code Regs, tit. 14 sec. 15306 provides that projects which consist of basic data collection, research and resource evaluation activities which do not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource are categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA. This project involves activities of education and info gathering through an EV ombudsman, training, workshops, meetings on EV charging station (EVCS) permitting, and establishing an index of potential EVCS site locations. The project's agreement does not fund installation of EVCS and will not cause direct or foreseeable indirect physical changes to the environment. Therefore, the project falls within section 15306 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
