Reasons for Exemption
Section Number 15332, Class 32, In-Fill Development Projects
(a) The project is consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable general plan policies as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations.
The Tentative Parcel Map does not propose any specific land use on the project site. However, any project proposing development on the project site shall be consistent with the applicable General Plan designation and also meet all General Plan and Zoning policies and regulations.
(b) The proposed development occurs within city limits on a project site of no more than five acres substantially surrounded by urban uses.
The project is located within City limits and is located on a project site that is vacant and is less than five acres. The proposed project is substantially surrounded by commercial development, residential development, and a major roadway.
(c) The project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species.
The proposed Tentative Parcel Map is located on a project site that is located within an MSHCP criteria cell. As part of the previous entitlement on this site the project went through the HANS/JPR process with the Regional Conservation Authority in which JPR 17-09-12-01 determined that the project is consistent with both the criteria and other plan requirements and no conservation of land was required.
(d) Approval of the project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality.
The proposed project is consolidating six (6) existing parcels into a single parcel and does not propose any grading, construction or development on the project site that would result in any significant effect relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality.
(e) The site can be adequately served by all required utilities and public services.
The project site is surrounded by development and is able to be serviced by all required utilities and public services.
The Tentative Parcel Map is the consolidation of six (6) individual parcels into a single parcel and does not propose grading or construction of any kind on the project site. The tentative parcel map does not have potential for causing a significant effect on the environment and therefore is not subject to CEQA.
