Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class: 1 Section: 15301 Existing Facilities; Class: 31 Section: 15331 Historical Resource Rehabilitation
Reasons for Exemption
Class 1 allows for the rehabilitation of deteriorated or damaged facilities to meet current standards of public health and safety, that involve negligible or no expansion of use. Additionally, Class 31 allows for the repair and rehabilitation of historical resources in a manner consistent with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. The Food and Ag building, built in 1936, is eligible for listing in the NRHP and is included in the Master List of Historic Resources. Therefore, the project has been designed to meet the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, and SHPO was consulted regarding the project designs. In a letter dated June 10, 2019 SHPO concurred that the project would not cause a substantial adverse effect to the historical resource. Therefore none of the exceptions to these exemptions are applicable.
