Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The Project has been environmentally reviewed pursuant to the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code Sections 21000, et seq.(“CEQA”), the State CEQA Guidelines (California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Sections 15000, et seq.), and the City’s Local CEQA Guidelines. The Project's scope of work consists of the installation of pedestrian and bicycle facilities and the installation of a transit prioritization project. The Project meets the criteria under a Categorical Exemption 15301 (c), as it consists of improvements on existing highways and streets where there is negligible or no expansion of use and the addition of bicycle facilities, including bicycle-share facilities and bicycle lanes, transit improvements such as bus lanes, pedestrian crossing, street trees and other similar alterations that do not create additional automobile lanes.
Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
PRC Section 21080.25
Reasons for Exemption
The Project qualifies for a statutory exemption under PRC Section 21080.25, as it includes (1) the installation of pedestrian and bicycle facilities, which includes bike lanes, either as separated bike lanes or shared bus/bike lanes; (2) the installation of a transit prioritization project, which involves the installation of dedicated transit or very high occupancy vehicle lanes, and shared turning lanes; and (3) the conversion of one general purpose lane to a bus lane. The Project also meets the additional criteria required to assert the exemption under PRC Section 21080.25, as it is located in an urbanized area, is located within existing public right-of-way, does not add physical infrastructure that increases automobile capacity, does not require demolition of affordable housing units, and will be carried out by a skilled and trained workforce. There are other requirements for projects greater than $100,000,000 which do not apply in this case because the cost of the Project does not exceed that threshold.
