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 Sections 15301 (Existing Facilities) and Section 3.a. of the District’s Guidelines for Compliance with CEQA because it consists of a License agreement for joint homeland security, public safety, dispatch, marina, and surveillance operations, 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.
