Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Under CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3), CEQA review is not required because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the adoption of the ordinance will have significant effect on the environment in that all proposed business operations will be subject to existing best management practices and are subject to issuance of a discretionary permit with appropriate environmental review.
