Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Existing Facilites [Section 15301]
Reasons for Exemption
CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 applies to projects that consist of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion or use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agencies determination. The Project is a CUP to operate a 20,245 square-foot event center within an existing building. The existing building was originally constructed for an assembly use and will continue to be utilized for assembly uses. The existing building was constructed to accommodate up to 678 attendees in the main assembly area. The conditions of approval limit the number of event attendees to 500, which is less than the assembly area was originally permitted to accommodate. No modifications to the exterior of the building or the site would occur, with the exception of updates to parking lot lighting for compliance with the Municipal Code requirements and the installation of a solid wall on a portion of the southern property line. All events are conditioned to occur primarily indoors, with a limited allowance (maximum of one hour) for outdoor activities associated with the primary event. Live music and amplified sound are not permitted outside the facility and all outdoor activities must comply with EGMC Chapter 6.32 related to noise control
