Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt under State CEQA Guidelines Section1506l(b)(3) common sense exemption, because the Project involves policies and programs, and actions to meet the City's RHNA allocation and would not result in any direct or indirect physical changes to the environment. To accommodate its RHNA allocation, the City identified potential housing sites that could accommodate a variety of housing types for all income levels and needs of special population groups. The City does not propose any site development on a candidate housing site/parcel Instead, the Housing Element Update identifies potential sites for future residential development and creates the framework to allow the market the opportunity to develop these units. Any changes to the City's Land Use Element and Zoning Code as required by the proposed Housing Element will be reviewed for environmental impacts at such time as the changes are brought forward for the City's consideration.
