Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt under the Common Sense Exemption because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the update to the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update candidate housing sites inventory would have a significant effect on the environment. Neither the Project nor the 2021-2029 Housing Element’s programs and policies would result in physical environmental impacts or direct housing construction. Additionally, the 2021-2029 Housing Element does not grant any development entitlements or authorize development beyond what is allowed under the City’s current General Plan and Zoning Code (Municipal Code Title 20).
