Reasons for Exemption
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”), the proposed Ordinance has been deemed to be exempt from further environmental review as there is no possibility that the proposed Ordinance would have a significant impact on the environment pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3). The proposed Ordinance revises the multi-family definition so that it applies to any housing project with two or more units and requires that multi-family and mixed-use housing developments comply with objective design standards. These Ordinances will not result in any increase in the intensity or density of any land use above what’s currently allowed. Moreover, Government Code Sections 65852.21(j) and 66411.7(n) provide that an ordinance adopted to implement SB 9 is not a project under CEQA. Staff is recommending that a Notice of Exemption be prepared and be filed in accordance with CEQA Guidelines.
