Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Article 19, Categorical Exemptions, Section 15301 Class 1, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
The Department of Cannabis Control has determined that the project is exempt from California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review pursuant to Article 19, Categorical Exemptions, Section 15301 Class 1, Existing Facilities. Class 1 Categorical Exemption applies because the cannabis facility will lease space of an approved building footprint, and it will permit the use of a portion of the building as a cannabis facility. Class 1 consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. The proposed cannabis facility will operate within leased space of an approved building that has been previously constructed. The project also involves minor alteration of the approved building as it will remodel 13,969 square feet of cannabis retail area and distribution area.
