Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The License Agreement is exempt from environmental review under the California Environmental Quality (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3), the “common sense exemption," which provides that CEQA applies only to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Here, SCV Water finds the License Agreement exempt from CEQA as "it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question” as it provides for the extension of an existing lease for continuation of an existing use in an existing structure, and so will have no “significant effect on the environment.” This project is also exempt pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines, section 15301 (Class 1). This section exempts from further environmental review the ongoing operation of existing public structures, facilities, and topographical features. Here, the approval of Ground Lease Amendment No. 4 will not result in a change in operation or use. As identified in the prior lease amendments, the City will have expanded access to certain areas where the City may choose to expand its disc golf activities. The lease amendment will also memorialize the City’s access to recreational trails that are already in use. In addition, no change in the use of the lease area is anticipated.
