Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project has been determined to be categorically exempt from environmental review under CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 Existing Facilities (Class 1 ), which exempts minor alterations of existing facilities involving negligible or no expansion of use. The proposed project would seismically retrofit the cast-in-place reinforced concrete building, upgrade accessibility and life safety systems, and make plumbing and heating improvements prior to use of the building as faculty rental housing. No expansion of the building or change in use of the building is proposed. The now vacant property would continue its existing use as housing, though for UCSF faculty housing instead of housing available to the general public. None of the exceptions to the use of categorical exemptions identified in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 would be triggered. The property is not a historic resource. As such, seismic improvements that affect the exterior appearance of the building would not have a significant effect on historic resources. Given the above, it can be seen with certainty that there would be no significant effect on the environment.
