NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
San Francisco State University is proceeding with minor interior alterations to existing space on the east half of the 8th floor of Hens ill Hall, an academic building housing classrooms, faculty, staff and administrative offices on the main campus. The purpose of the Project is to renovate approximately 10,550 SF, and convert these spaces to traditional lecture style classrooms, including light/power and data, as well as accessibility upgrades. Also, the existing greenhouse glazed roof will be replaced with a system that provides enhanced solar gain, glare control, and improved thermal insulation. The Project will advance the educational mission of the California State University in general and benefit the San Francisco campus in particular.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
It has been determined that the Project is Categorically Exempt under Title 14, CCR 15301, Class 1: Existing Facilities. Because minor alterations to an existing academic facility will cause negligible or no expansion of use beyond that currently existing, the Project is exempt. Importantly, the Project is not foreclosed by an enumerated exception on the use of a Categorical Exemption. See generally 14 Cal Code Regs. Section 15300.2. Specifically, the Project will not be located in a particularly sensitive environment; will not have a significant cumulative impact; will not have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances, will not result in damage to scenic resources, will not be located on a site included on any list compiled pursuant to state law; and, it will not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource. Ibid. For these reasons, it is determined that the Hensill Hall 8th Floor Roof and Classroom Renovation Project is exempt from CEQA and no further environmental review is necessary.
