Reasons for Exemption
The revocation of the Auburn Trapshooting Club Shot Screen Variance is exempt from environmental review pursuant to provisions of Section 15061 (b)(4) and 15321 since the action requested is revocation of the variance due to a failure to comply with the conditions of approval and the Placer County Code.
