Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
General Rule Exception (14 CCR 15061(b)(3))
Reasons for Exemption
The adoption of the 2019-27 Housing Element is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the 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. To the extent that the adoption of some portions of the 2019-27 Housing Element constitute a project under CEQA, the update makes minor changes to the 2014-19 Housing Element. None of these changes have the potential to adversely affect the physical environmental, as they merely require adherence to state law requirements necessary to bring the Housing Element to conformance to state law. All other portions of the 2019-27 Housing Element are not changes, but rather reflect the 2014-19 Housing Element provisions, all of which were subjected to CEQA upon their original adoption. As such, that review remains sufficient for the current step of re-adopting and updating the 2019-27 Housing Element.
