Reasons for Exemption
State CEQA Guidelines Section 15183 (Public Resources Code §21083.3), provides that projects which are consistent with the development density established by a Community Plan, General Plan, or Zoning for which an environmental impact report (EIR) has been certified “shall not require additional environmental review, except as might be necessary to examine whether there are project-specific significant effects which are peculiar to the project or its site.” An EIR was prepared and certified by the City Council as part of the Elk Grove General Plan (SCH# 2017062058). The proposed Project is consistent with the development density and use characteristics considered by the General Plan EIR in the Light Industrial land use designation. New construction on the Project site shall comply with EGMC development standards for land grading and erosion control (Chapter 16.44), as well as EGMC Title 16 (Building and Construction) and Title 22 (Land Development). Compliance with these standards has been included in the conditions of approval for the Project.
