Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
§15303 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures)
Reasons for Exemption
The project would construct an accessory building, permissible in the site’s zoning district when considered under a special plan review permit (administrative minor use permit) as requested by this application. The proposed structure constitutes a smaller extent of change than the examples specified and granted CEQA exemption in the aforementioned State CEQA Guidelines section. The site has not been identified as having environmental properties requiring special attention, and the project would be subject to conditions of approval addressing better environmental practices. More intensive use of the structure beyond personal purposes would potentially require further discretionary review by the County.
