Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15303 - New Construction or Conversion of small structures, 15304 -Minor Alterations to land
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is categorically exempt under 14 California Code of Regulations Section 15303 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures) because it involves installation of small new equipment, such as new picnic tables, fire rings, sign posts, trail markers and signage and the conversion of existing small structures, that is, campground layout using driftwood, on-site boulders, and native plants, where only minor modifications were made in the exterior of the structure. In this case, the Mattole Beach Campground is being internally reconfigured, but the footprint of the campground will remain the same. The project is also categorically exempt under Section 15304 (Minor Alterations to Land) because it consists of minor public alterations in the condition of land which do not involve the removal of heathy, mature, scenic trees. The project will include the removal of some shrubs and small bushes to create space for campsites and for additional parking but will not involve the removal of any mature trees, nor any grading on land with a slope of greater than 10%.
