Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Categorical Exemption 15301, Class 1
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is located on a previously developed parcel. The buildings that will be used for the proposal are existing and the applicant does not propose to expand the existing buildings. All proposed cannabis activities will occur within the buildings and no new exterior construction or major grading is proposed for the completion of this project beyond that of the CalTrans required encroachment improvement. Therefore, short-term construction emissions are not anticipated. The property has existing designated truck delivery areas, an existing paved parking lot with approximately 27 spaces for employees, and existing utilities that supports the building. The proposed project is not anticipated to have a potential impact on traffic as the proposal will consist of approximately 2 to 5 deliveries/shipments/distribution trips per day. A Trip Generation Assessment was performed for the project, which concluded that the project would be expected to result in fewer daily and peak hour trips than the previous use of the site (Parker Plastics - plastics manufacturing business) and is expected to have an acceptable effect on operation of the surrounding roadway network. No fugitive dust emission impacts are expected. The existing access road and project parcel is equipped with storm water drainages that will remove roadway contamination from public waterways; no impacts to storm water drainage patterns are anticipated. Additionally, the existing building will be equipped with filtration systems to prevent the movement of odors, chemicals, pesticides, and other air borne contaminants out of or into the existing building.
