Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The project is consistent with the land use regulations and policies set forth in City of Petaluma General Plan (GP) and the Central Petaluma Specific Plan (CPSP), and complies with the established zoning regulations set forth in the SmartCode. The Haystack Mixed-Use Project is consistent with the development density and intensity established for the project site in the GP and CPSP and would not result in any new or more severe environmental impacts that were not previously identified in the GP or CPSP EIRs. The project site is located within City limits on a priority development site that is less than 5 acres and is substantially surrounded by established urban uses. The project site is void of natural vegetation and there is no habitat that would support endangered, rare or threatened species. The project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality. The project is adequately served by all required utilities and public services. There are no exceptions that would preclude application of the exemption. The applicant will implement all applicable policies and mitigation measures from the GP and CPSP EIRs. Therefore, the project is exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Sections 15168 ( Consistency with Program EIRs), 15183 (Community Plan Exemption), 15332 (Infill Exemption), and California Government Code Section 65457 (Specific Plan Exemption).
