Class 3 (14 CCR 15303)
Reasons for Exemption

Class 4 (14 CCR 15304)
Reasons for Exemption
Class 4 – Minor Alterations to Land: The project is categorically exempt from CEQA under the “Class 4” (14 CCR 15304) exemption per the CEQA Guidelines because the project involves the minor alteration of the condition of land and/or vegetation and does not require the removal of healthy, mature scenic trees.
Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
14 CCR 15300.2
Reasons for Exemption
Exceptions to Exemptions - CalGEM further finds that there are no exceptions to the otherwise-applicable categorical exemptions (PRC §21084; 14 CCR 15300.2(c)). There is no substantial evidence that there are any “unusual circumstances” associated with the proposed project that create a reasonable possibility that the activity will have a significant effect on the environment, and that there is no significant “cumulative impacts” resulting from successive projects of the same type in the same place. Therefore, this project is not subject to CEQA.
