Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301, Class 1: Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
The project includes entering into master service agreements for the provision of 70 rooms at existing hotels with no expansion of the existing use, which is categorically exempt from CEQA under Class 1, Existing Facilities (CEQA Guidelines Section 15301). The hotels are not located in an environmentally sensitive area, on a hazardous waste site, and are not considered a historic resource. In addition, the project would not result in damage to scenic resources or result in significant cumulative impacts. Therefore, none of the exceptions to this exemption apply. The project site is not located within a planning area of an established LRDP.
