Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15302 Replacement or Reconstruction; 15303 New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures
Reasons for Exemption
As noted earlier, the Activity/Project is for construction of a publically accessible 288 square foot building to house a restroom (men's, women's, and a family facilities, including accessible parking spaces) adjacent to the existing Three Rivers Historical Museum. In addition, a level pad will be constructed adjacent to the proposed restrooms to allow for additional future display space for museum proposes. As such, the Activity/Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the Replacement or Reconstruction and New construction or Conversion of Small Structures Exemptions (14 Cal. Code Regs. Sections 15302 and 16303; respectively) on the grounds that it can be reasonably concluded that the Activity/Project (replacement of an existing restroom through construction of a new 288 square foot structure and new parking) will not have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of Sections 15302 and 15303 for the proposed Activity/Project is appropriate and applicable.
