Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061 (b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The project was originally approved subject to an Addendum to the Certified Subsequent Environmental Impact Report for the Meridian Specific Plan Amendment (SCH# 2009071069), pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act. The March Joint Powers Authority finds that the project is exempt from State CEQA Guidelines under Section 15061 (b)(3). Under Section 15061 (b)(3), "The activity is covered by the common sense exemption that CEQA applies only to projects, which have the potential for causing. a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA." The proposed changes include minor modifications to the previously approved site plan and building elevations for the MS Van Buren II Business Park. The proposed modifications do not have the potential for causing any new significant effects to the environment which was not previously analyzed in the Initial Study for Plot Plan 17-05. Thus not making it a "Project" per its definition under State CEQA Guidelines Section 21065.
