Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The subject ordinance would be exempt from the requirements to prepare additional environmental documentation per California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, Section 15061 (b)(3). This section is the “common sense exemption” that states that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. If the Lead Agency can determine with that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA. Pursuant to this section, the proposed amendments and adjustments fit within the general rule that CEQA only applies to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. In that the proposed amendments and adjustments would provide clarity, create consistency of terms and definitions, streamline approval processes, and amend Code requirements to reflect current market trends, the proposed adjustments and amendments will not have a significant effect on the environment; and, therefore the activity is not subject to CEQA.
