15301, 15302, 15303, 15311
Reasons for Exemption
Section 15301 covers the minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features and the demolition and removal of individual small structures. Section 15302 covers the replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced. Section 15303 covers the construction/installation of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; and/or installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures. Section 15311 covers the construction or placement of minor structures accessory to existing commercial, industrial, or institutional facilities, including small parking lots.
The project is consistent with the categorical exemptions noted above because work would consist of the alteration of existing public facilities, replacement of existing structures and facilities on the same site with substantially the same purpose and capacity, construction of new small structures, and construction of a small parking lot.
