Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301, Class 1
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 involve minor alterations to an existing building and no expansion of the building is proposed. In addition, the proposed population increase of approximately 20 persons in the daytime and 20 to 30 persons during other shifts is negligible given the existing dense urban environment and the current on-site population of over 200 persons. Given the foregoing, it can be seen with certainty that there would be no significant effect on the environment. None of the exceptions to the use of categorical exemptions identified under CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 would apply.
