The sidewalk project is included among the projects statutorily exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) by SB 288. SB 288 (September 28, 2020) establishes California Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 21080.25 which exempts projects such as pedestrian facilities (PRC Section 21080.25(b)(1)) from CEQA, if they are carried out by a public agency, if they are located in an urbanized area, if the project is located in a public right of way, does not increase automobile capacity and does not require the demolition of affordable housing units. Special conditions for projects larger than $100,000,000 are also included. The statutory exemption applies to the sidewalk project, as it is carried out by the City of Los Angeles, is located in an urbanized area, is located in a public right of way, does not increase automobile capacity or require the demolition of affordable housing. It also applies to its accessories. Conditions for projects larger than $100,000,000 do not apply.
