Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 32
Reasons for Exemption
The project is an infill development project under Class 32 of the California Environmental Quality (CEQA) Guidelines. The project is consistent with applicable general plan policies, and also consistent with applicable requirements of the City’s zoning ordinance. The project is within City limits, on a site less than five acres, and surrounded by urban uses. The site has no value as a habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species. The project site is able to be served by all required utilities and public services. Technical studies that showed the proposed project would have less than significant impacts concerning traffic, noise, and air. Additionally, compliance with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System and requirements of the Gardena Municipal Code would ensure the project’s construction-related activities would not violate any water quality standards or otherwise substantially degrade surface or groundwater quality, resulting in a less than significant impact. Therefore, the City does not foresee any adverse impacts to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality. The proposed project is not subject to any of the exceptions for exemption under Section 15300.2 of the CEQA Guidelines. The location of the project is predominantly urban and not considered a sensitive environment; therefore, the project will not result in any significant impacts that may otherwise occur in a sensitive environmental area. The cumulative impact of this project, and the approval of other projects like it in the vicinity, is not expected to have any significant environmental impact. The project is not located along any state designated scenic highway nor within any designated hazardous waste site. A Cultural Resources Assessment found that neither of the two existing buildings on the property appear to have historical significance. Staff does not expect any significant impacts or unusual circumstances related to the approval and construction of this project. Therefore, the proposed project is categorically exempt from CEQA under CEQA Guidelines section 15332, Infill Exemption.
