Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Existing Facilities (SG § 15301) (Class 1)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is determined to be Categorically Exempt pursuant to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15301 (Existing Facilities) and Section 3.a. of the District’s Guidelines for Compliance with CEQA because it consists of renewal of an existing tenancy agreement for operation and management of petroleum storage tanks, receiving and delivery pipelines, safety and control equipment, and fixed firefighting equipment and office building space, would involve no expansion of use beyond that previously existing, and would not result in a significant cumulative impact due to the continuation of the existing use. The District has determined none of the six exceptions to the use of a categorical exemption apply to this project (CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2). Section 3.a. of the District’s CEQA Guidelines is as follows: 3.a. Existing Facilities (SG § 15301) (Class 1): Includes operation, repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that previously existing. (4) New and renewed short-term tenancy agreements which do not result in change in the existing use. This exemption does not apply to any new development associated with the activities of the tenant. This exception is also inapplicable if the cumulative impact of continuing the existing use or conditions in the same place, over time, is significant.
