Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The project is consistent with the development density and use characteristics considered by the Kern County general plan environmental impact report and zoning and floodplain ordinances, and accordingly, pursuant to section 15183 of CEQA guidelines, does not require further environmental review. Section 15183 provides that projects which are consistent with the development density established by a general plan or zoning for which an EIR has been certified shall not require additional environmental review, except as might be necessary to examine whether there are project-specific effects which are peculiar to the project or its site. Project-specific minimization and avoidance measures will be undertaken as part of this project as necessary through compliance with water resources and streambed alteration permit requirements.
