Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15303 Class 3
Reasons for Exemption
The project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15303 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures) because it has no potential to have a significant effect on the environment. Class 3 consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures, including one single-family residence. The Project will create an additional lot with the potential for development of one additional dwelling unit. While no construction is currently proposed, this action would enable the future construction of a single-family residence without additional discretionary review. There are no other changes involved with the Project which would adversely affect the environment. The Project is consistent with the existing RS-D General Plan and the R-1 Zoning Code designations, maintains the Zoning Code development standards for lot width, area and setbacks, satisfies the Fire Department requirement for emergency access, and the Project density and traffic will not exceed the thresholds established by the City that would trigger the need for a vote per City Charter Section 423. The exceptions to this categorical exemption under Section 15300.2 of the CEQA Guidelines are not applicable because the Project location does not impact an environmental resource of hazardous or critical concern, does not result in cumulative impacts, does not have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances, does not damage scenic resources within a state scenic highway, is not a hazardous waste site, and is not identified as a historical resource.
