Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Section 15301, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
The Planning Commission determined that the effects of the proposed project are Categorically Exempt from the requirements to prepare additional environmental documentation per California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, Section 15301, Class 1 (Existing Facilities). The Class 1 exemption consists of the repair, maintenance, and/or minor alteration of existing public or private structures or facilities, involving negligible or no expansion of the use beyond that existing at the time of this determination, and would not cause a significant effect on the environment. The proposed project is a request to permit an automotive body repair facility within an existing industrial building and only interior improvements are proposed. Staff has determined that this would be a negligible expansion of the existing use; and, therefore, the proposed project meets the criteria for a Class 1 Exemption. Pursuant to Section 15300.2 (c) and 15301 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, there are no unusual circumstances in respect to the proposed project for which staff would anticipate a significant effect on the environment and, therefore, the proposed project would be categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
