Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Section 15268(b)
Reasons for Exemption
The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA, Section 21000, et seq. of the California Public Resources Code), requires analysis of agency approvals of discretionary “projects.” A “project,” under CEQA, is defined as “the whole of an action, which has a potential for resulting in either a direct physical change in the environment, or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment.” The proposed Final Map is a project under CEQA. The adoption of the Final Map is exempt from CEQA under Section 15268(b) of Chapter 3 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations (State CEQA Guidelines). Section 15628(b) exempts ministerial approval by public agencies from CEQA. Final Maps are specifically cited as a type of ministerial permit. Therefore, this project qualifies for the identified exemption. The direction to conduct further public input at public meetings regarding Parcel B park design is not a project pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15378. Such direction has no potential for resulting in physical changes to the environment, directly or indirectly, because it consists of administrative activities to direct a public body to hold public meetings.
