Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 5 (§15305, Minor Alterations in Land Use Limitations)
Reasons for Exemption
The current action would maintain an identical configuration of current lots, neither creating new lots nor changing lot lines. This action would amend a prior subdivision to establish additional site access that would enable land use only to the low-density degree allowed under the County General Plan Rangeland (RG) district. While the earlier approval limited land use to less than the degree allowed under RG until installation of additional access, both the land use limit’s removal and the additional access were foreseen as possibilities at the time of the prior subdivision. Existing standards of the County General Plan allow more intensive use of the RG district that that which currently exists on the project site and that which could result from the change proposed by the map. While critical habitat exists on and around the project site for the California red-legged frog, little actual change to the subject property would occur, with activities on the site subject to rules addressing environmental concerns, rules including conditions of approval herein and existing regulations under County Code. Between the property’s lowest and highest elevations, the property rises at a slope averaging 11 percent. All road improvement would occur along the course of existing roadway length; this includes proposed secondary access, foreseen upon the earlier subdivision approval and using an existing roadway. Other improvements would be governed by existing County regulations.
