Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Section 15325(f); CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Board’s actions to approve this real property acquisition and related documents and agreements, (collectively, the “Actions”) are each Categorically Exempt from environmental review pursuant to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15325(f). This section provides for the transfer of ownership of land for fee title interests to maintain the open space character of an area and to preserve existing natural conditions and other resources. It can also be seen with certainty that the requested Actions will have no significant impact under CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3). Each of these facts is a separate and independent basis for the Board’s determination that the Actions are each exempt from CEQA and do not require further CEQA review.
