Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3), Common Sense Exemption
Reasons for Exemption
Pursuant to the State CEQA Guidelines §15061(b)(3), a project is exempt from CEQA if it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. This “general rule” or “common sense” exemption applies to projects that do not fit within a statutory or categorical exemption, but where it can be clearly demonstrated that the project has no potential to have significant environmental effects. Project implementation will serve to ensure the two new buildings and two additions/impriovements meet current building code and fire code requirements and conform to CSUF sustainability goals such as energy efficient design. Proposed construction will take place entirely within the CSUF campus, confined to the campus sports complex and its immediate exterior hardscape and landscaped areas and would considered infill development in a previously developed area. Construction and operation would not impact off-campus uses or sensitive on-campus uses. For these reasons, project construction and operation are determined to not result in any potentially significant direct or indirect environmental impacts, and therefore the project qualifies for the common sense exemption.
