Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301, 15061(b)(3), 15378(a) and (b)(5)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed actions are in compliance with the provision of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under Section 15301, Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations and is also exempt from review because it does not meet the definition of a project under CEQA Guidelines sections 15061, subdivision (b)(3), and section 15378, subdivision (a) and subdivision (b)(5). The proposed changes to Chapter 17, as authorized and required by state law, have no potential for resulting in physical changes to the environment because they consist of changes in the standards governing issuance of permits for density bonus projects and do not directly or indirectly approve any applications for particular projects. Any particular proposed project will be required to undergo the City’s entitlement process and appropriate review under CEQA.
