Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15303, Class 3, and Section 15311, Class 11
Reasons for Exemption
Class 3 Categorical Exemptions includes a list of classes of projects that have been determined not to have a significant effect on the environment and that are, therefore, exempt from the provisions of CEQA. Section 15303 lists Class 3 projects, which include “construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures: installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structure." The proposed blending building and laboratory are small structures with no expected significant effect on the environment and, therefore, the project is not subject to CEQA. Class 11 consists of construction, or placement of minor structures accessory to (appurtenant to) existing commercial, industrial, or institutional facilities.
