Document Description
Department of General Services (DGS) seeks to acquire two parcels of land known as Sacramento County APNs 006-0266-016-0000 and 006-0266-017-0000. The acquisition activity will transfer ownership of land totaling 13,000 square feet from the private parties to the State of California under the jurisdiction of DGS, in partnership with the Capitol Area Development Authority (CADA). Current DGS-managed state garages in Sacramento have a waiting list of approximately 2,500 state employees. This activity will facilitate alleviation of this problem by providing parking. CADA adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration (State Clearinghouse Number 2017112010) as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the future development of the 8th and R Street Parking Structure Project. The structure would span the entire length of the block between 8th and 9th Streets with the footprint extending to the Quill Alley (properties in question).

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
title 14, sec. 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Exempt Status: "general rule" or "common sense" exemption The acquisition activity is exempt under the "general rule" or "common sense" exemption at California Code of Regulations, title 14, section 15061, subdivision (b)(3). The common sense exemption states project is exempt from CEQA is "the activity is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment". The land acquisition agreements that transfer the ownership to the State do not have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Under a separate action, CADA filed a Notice of Determination of the related subsequent activity, which includes future development of the 8th and R Streets Parking Structure Project. That project was conditioned upon full CEQA compliance per California Public Resources Code, sections 21108 and 21152, and determined not to have a significant effect on the environment.
