Reasons for Exemption
Regionwide Permit No. 9 is categorically exempt because it authorizes only temporary uses on a minor portion of San Francisco Bay that has negligible or no permanent effects on the environment. It is also categorically exempt because it involves converting structures causing fill in Richardson Bay to live-aboard boats, with only minor exterior changes to ensure the boats comply with RBRA’s Safe and Seaworthy requirements. It is also an action by regulatory agencies to protect natural resources and the environment.
