Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301(c), Existing Facilities Section 15304, Minor Alterations to Land
Reasons for Exemption
The Local Roadway Safety Plan is categorically exempt from environmental review pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Sections 15301(c), as activities proposed by the plan such as installation of raised medians, restriping for road diets and pavement marking width upgrades involve minor alterations to existing facilities that will result in negligible or no expansion of use. The plan is also consistent with Section 15304 of the CEQA Guidelines because future improvements will involve minor public alterations in the condition of land and/or vegetation which does not involve the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. None of the exceptions listed in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2, entitled “Exceptions”, are applicable to the project. Specifically, the Local Roadway Safety Plan will be conducted within the existing and intended public right of way and not an environmental resource of hazardous or critical concern. Cumulative impacts are not significant due to the project location outside of environmentally sensitive resources. There is no reasonable possibility or unusual circumstance that would result from the plan or from plan implementation activities within the existing or intended public right-of-way. There are no designated scenic highways within the City of Santee. The City of Santee public right-of-way and intended public right-of-way is not listed as a hazardous waste site and the project limits would not include historical resources within the City of Santee.
