Notice of Exemption
- Exempt Status
- Categorical Exemption
- Type, Section or Code
- Article 5, Section 15060 (c)(2)
- Reasons for Exemption
- The proposed project is exempt from the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Article 5, Section 15060 (c)(2) because the purchase of the parcels will not result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment. The properties are being purchased by the City of Ukiah, which intends to protect and preserve open spaces on the properties for the purposes of conservation, fire safety, and watershed protection. However, activities of which the City of Ukiah would engage in to protect and preserve the open spaces have not been identified. Without this information it is not possible to meaningfully assess the environmental impacts or the type of environmental review that is appropriate or required by CEQA for the future use of the properties. Additionally, until such information is developed, the City will make no changes to the existing use or condition of the property if acquired. As a result, the project consisting of the acquisition of 518 acres of wildlands in Ukiah's western urban interface " ... will not result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment." (14 CCR §15060(c)(2).) Based on the foregoing, the project qualifies for the above CEQA exemption.
