Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301 (Existing Facilities), Section 15061(b)(3) (Common Sense Exemption)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed Project involves the acquisition and rehabilitation of an existing and operational motel, which shall then be used to provide interim housing on the Property and accordingly does not involve any change in land use or density, nor any expansion of use. Accordingly, the proposed Project is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 15301 (Existing Facilities) of the CEQA Guidelines, which exempts the repair and minor alteration of existing public or private structures involving negligible or no expansion of use, as well as Section 15061(b)(3), commonly known as the common sense exemption, which acknowledges that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment and in this instance there is no possibility that the Project may have a significant effect on the environment, given that there is no change in the land use, density, nor any expansion of use. Therefore, the proposed Project is not subject to CEQA.
