Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The minor expansion of the existing uses on this parcel consists of the addition of three new tub sites. Two of the proposed tub sites (tub sites 13 & 14) are proposed in areas that are free of vegetation and would not require grading or any form of additional site disturbance. Proposed tub site 15, however, would require approximately 1,800-square feet of site disturbance (including 70’ of new road access & a 9’ x 18’ parking space) in the form of vegetation removal and minor grading. No additional site disturbance is proposed as part of this project and the maximum disturbance area from the addition of tub site 15 would be 1,800-square feet. The only new construction occurring at these sites is associated with the hot spring tubs themselves which is a total of 138-square feet for all three hot spring tubs (86-square feet, 16-square feet, and 36-square feet, respectively). In total 1,938-square feet of combined new construction and site disturbance is proposed which is well below the 2,500-square foot threshold of this exemption.
