Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is categorically exempt under CEQA according to sections 15301 (d), 15303 (e) and 15304 (b), because the project provides for repair of deteriorated facilities to meet current standards of public health and safety, construction of small new structures, and new landscaping which will not involve the removal of healthy, mature and scenic trees.
