Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Existing FacilitiesSection 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The Planning Commission evaluated the project’s potential environmental impacts and determined that the proposed project qualifies for a Class 1 Categorical Exemption from the California Environmental Quality Act(CEQA).This exemption applies to projects that consist of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. This exemption applies to the proposed supportive and transitional housing facility because it would operate within an existing single-family residence without any physical expansion of the existing structure. Therefore, the proposed project is categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA
