Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15332, Infill Development Projects
Reasons for Exemption
The project meets the criteria of CEQA Guidelines Section 15332: a) The use is consistent with the General Plan Land Use Designation of General Commercial and the C-3 Central Business and Shopping Zone District. b) The site is less than five acres in size (15,000 SF or 0.344 acre) and is abutted on three sides by existing urban development. c) The site has no habitat value, as it is a small, treeless, urban site surrounded by development and was itself fully developed until a fire destroyed the previously-existing structure. d) The project would not result in significant effects: a. Traffic. The proposed use is approved for up to 80 customers per day. It has access to 6th Street (local) and Oller Street (State Route 180), both of which are fully improved and have ample capacity for the anticipated volume of traffic. b. Noise. The operation will be required to comply with the City of Mendota Noise Ordinance, codified at Chapter 9.05 of the Mendota Municipal Code. c. Air Quality. The project does not meet any of the criteria for Small Project Analysis Level (SPAL) of the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and is therefore considered to have a less than significant effect on air quality. d. Water Quality. The project is required to comply with City Engineer and Public Works requirements for connection to the City’s water and wastewater systems, including compliance with the City’s cross-connection prevention program. e) There is adequate capacity in the City’s water, wastewater, and storm drainage systems. The abutting streets are sufficient in improvement and capacity. Dry utilities are available in the alley to the rear of the site.
