Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Categorical Exemption Section 15332, Class 32, In-Fill Development Projects
Reasons for Exemption
Class 32 promotes infill development on sites of less than five acres within urbanized areas that are consistent with local general plan and zoning requirements. The project proposes the construction and operation of a retail building with a drive-thru lane located within a predominantly urbanized area. The City of Irvine’s General Plan (Land Use Element, Figure A-3) and Zoning Ordinance (Section 3-37-29) allow for employee-oriented retail projects of this type subject to approval of a conditional use permit. The area planned for development is improved as a parking lot that has no value as habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species. The site and surrounding areas are fully improved with utilities, public services, and infrastructure necessary to support the proposed retail use. The surrounding street network and land uses have been improved with consideration for the planned commercial development, and the project will not have a significant adverse effect on traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality.
