Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301(h), 15304, 15308
Reasons for Exemption
Removal of dead vegetation will encourage the health of native landscaping within the project area in addition to minimizing fire hazards. Fuel management activities include the removal of fallen timber, reduction of under story growth, and removal of dead and dry non-native grasses. Ground disturbance of any kind is not proposed or anticipated, and the fire hazard abatement activities will not result in the taking of any endangered species. The routine maintenance of this open space area will provide protection for both the natural and built environments from wildfire risks. The current risks of wildfire are extreme and have generated emergency conditions throughout the State of California, as declared by the Governor on August 18, 2020.
