Reasons for Exemption
CEQA Guidelines Section 15302, Class 2 consists of "replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced ... " The project qualifies for an exemption under this category as it will replace 17 existing portable classrooms with a permanent 2-story building on the same campus and generally at the same location. The area where the portable buildings are removed will be restored with landscape and hardscape. The proposed project was also reviewed for possible exceptions under Section 15300.2 and found that the exceptions do not apply. See Attachment to Notice of Exemption for further explanation of the evaluation, which is available at the Capistrano Unified School District, Facilities Department, 33333 Golden Lantern, Dana Point, CA.
