Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Sections 15308 & 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Setting thresholds of significance for transportation impacts is not a "project" within the meaning of Public Resources Code Section 21065 and CEQA Guidelines section 15378 because the adoption of thresholds does not have the potential of resulting in a direct physical change to the environment or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment. Even if the adoption of the thresholds were a project, they would be categorically exempt from CEQA under CEQA Guidelines section 15308 because they are adopted pursuant in a regulatory process lo establish thresholds consistent the use of VMT to analysis impacts lo traffic in order lo protect the environment, and under the "common sense" exemption in CEQA Guidelines Section 15061 (b )(3) because there is no possibility that adoption of the thresholds would have a significant effect on the environment.
