The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA, Section 21000, et seq. of the California Public Resources Code), requires that the potential impacts of projects that will have a physical impact on the environment be analyzed prior to their construction. State CEQA Guidelines Sections 15060(c)(3), 15061(b)(3), and 15378 exempts projects that have no potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA. The Planning Commission's action involves determining the proposed acquisition of 9676 Railroad Street by the City is consistent with the City's General Plan. It does not directly authorize the acquisition of the property or construction of any project. Therefore, the determination of consistency will not have a direct effect on the environment. As such, the potential action qualifies for this exemption and no further environmental review is required.
