Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15303, 15304
Reasons for Exemption
Statutory exemption section 21080.25. To the extent some leased circuit may need to occur outside of the LMR site, such work would involve minor alteration of existing facilities, mechanical equipment, and location of new small facilities as well as minor alteration in the condition of land within the public ROW. There would be negligible to no expansion of use associated with this activity since the fiber for the leased circuit lines are dedicated to providing this type of connectivity. Leased circuit work would not include the removal of healthy, mature scenic trees and would not be located in a particularly sensitive environment, and there are no cumulative impacts, unusual circumstances, or other limiting factors that would make the categorical exemptions inapplicable based on the project records.
