Reasons for Exemption
The project meets the requirements of a CEQA Article 19, Public Resources Code, Sections 15302 and 15303, covering Class 2 (aircraft loading ramp) and 3 (generator/transfer switch) categorical exemptions. The proposed activities involve replacement of an existing aircraft loading area and installation of a standby generator and transfer switch at the UAAB. The project is proposed within a developed area. Field review by CAL FIRE staff confirmed that no exceptions apply (Section 15300.2) which would preclude the use of a Notice of Exemption for this project. The Department has concluded that no significant environmental impact would occur to aesthetics, agriculture and forestland/timberland, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, energy, geology and soils, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, land use planning, mineral resources, noise, population and housing, public services, recreation, transportation/traffic, utilities and service systems, or wildfire. Documentation of the environmental review completed by the Department is kept on file at CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit, Resource Management, 17501 N. Highway 101, Willits, CA 95490, Attn. Environmental Coordinator.
