Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, 3, and 4; Section 15301, 15303 and 15304
Reasons for Exemption
The project qualifies for a Class 1, 3 and 4 Categorical Exemption, pursuant to Sections 15301, 15303 and 15304 of the State CEQA Guidelines, as it minor alteration of an existing recreational facility on a developed parcel located with an urban services area. The project would convert an existing skatepark into a bicycle pump track. The project also involves increasing the size of the footprint of the existing recreational facility by 4,000± square feet from 15,000± to 19,000± square feet. The site is nearly flat, with ground elevation predominantly between 26± feet and 28± feet AMSL. Demolition and grading activities would result in the off-hauling of a small amount of materials, consisting of 100± cubic yards of asphalt, 40± cubic yards of organic material, and 40± cubic yards of metal recycling. Off-haul truck trips would require a total of six trips over three days, which would not result in a traffic related impact. No noise-related impacts are anticipated, in that the project site is not located near a sensitive receptor (e.g., residence) and all demolition and grading activities would occur during normal business hours. The proposed use—a bicycle pump track—is conditionally permitted in the PF Zoning District.
