Reasons for Exemption
The project meets the requirements of a CEQA Article 19 Class 2 Categorical exemption, consisting of "replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and where the new structure[ s] will be located on the same site as the structure[ s] rep laced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure[s] replaced ..."
The proposed project will not have a significant effect on the environment. Field review by CAL FIRE staff confirmed that no exceptions apply which would preclude the use of a Notice of Exemption for this project. The Department has concluded that no significant environmental impact would occur to aesthetics, agriculture and forestland/timberland, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, land use planning, mineral resources, noise, population and housing, public services, recreation, transportation/traffic, or to utilities and service systems. Documentation of the environmental review completed by the Department is kept on file at CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit, Resource Management, 17501 N. Highway 101, Willits, CA 95490, Attn. Environmental Coordinator.
