Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt from review under CEQA Guidelines Section 15333 (14 Cal. Code Regs. §15333) as a small habitat restoration project, not exceeding five acres, to assure the restoration and enhancement of habitat for fish, plants, or wildlife and with no significant adverse impact on endangered, rare or threatened species or their habitat, no known hazardous materials at or around the project site and, given the scale and methodology, no potential for cumulatively significant effects. The proposed project is also categorically exempt under CEQA Guidelines Section 15304 (Minor Alterations to Land) because removing trash and invasive species and planting native plants are landscaping activities that do not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees.
