Main Street Closure

Document Description
The City of Culver City (City) is proposing to close Main Street to vehicle traffic each Tuesday afternoon for the Main Street Farmers Market and on weekends (Friday night to Sunday night) (proposed project). To accomplish the closure, the City is proposing to install permanent bollards that would be removable/retractable to allow vehicle traffic on Mondays, Tuesday mornings, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. In addition, to allow for the continued closure of Main Street in the near term before the permanent bollards are installed, the City is proposing to implement a temporary closure condition using parked City trucks or buses to prohibit vehicle access through Main Street on closure days.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sections 15301 (Class 1), 15304 (Class 4)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project consists of a minor alteration to an existing street. The proposed intermittent closure would result in no expansion or change in use as Main Street is already used for the purposes of pedestrian crossings, outdoor dining, public gathering, and the Main Street Farmers Market. Thus, the proposed project would be categorically exempt from the CEQA as a Class 1 project pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15301(c). In addition, the proposed project constitutes a minor alteration of land as the bollards are common traffic control devices that result in a negligible effect on the environment. The proposed improvement would be installed entirely within the street right-of-way, and no trees or other vegetation would be removed. The purpose of the proposed closure is to allow for the intermittent use of the Main Street right-of-way for pedestrian use, outdoor dining, public gathering, and weekly farmers market uses. Accordingly, the proposed project is categorically exempt from the CEQA as a Class 4 project pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15304(e).
