Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is categorically exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to 14 California Code of Regulations Section 15301. Section 15301 exempts repair, maintenance, and minor alteration of existing public structures, facilities, and topographical features involving no expansion of use. This exemption applies because the project consists of planting trees on public lands, including green spaces adjacent to various streams, creeks, washes, lakes, neighborhood parks, and parkways, which is a minor alteration of these public lands with no expansion of use.
