Reasons for Exemption
The Anaheim Planning Commission, at its meeting on April 12, 2021,
evaluated the project's potential environmental impacts and determined that the proposed project qualifies for a Class 32 Categorical Exemption from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). This exemption applies to projects that are considered an infill project by meeting the following criteria: (a) consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable general plan policies as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations; (b) is no more than five acres in size substantially surrounded by urban uses, (c) has no value as a habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species; (d) would not result in significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality; and (e) can be adequately served by all required utilities and public services. As described by the environmental analysis prepared for this project, which is on file with the Planning and Building Department, the proposed project meets these criteria. Pursuant to Section 15300.2 (c) and Section 15332 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, there are no unusual circumstances in respect to the proposed project for which staff would anticipate a significant effect on the environment and, therefore, the proposed project is categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
