Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1: Use of existing facilities; Class 4: Minor alteration to land
Reasons for Exemption
Cultivation of agricultural crops, including minor alterations to the land for security fencing and lighting associated with agricultural cultivation. The Class 1 exemption is based upon the use of the existing facilities (well, septic tank, driveway, electrical service, land) to cultivate and temporarily store the immature cannabis prior to distributing them off site. The Class 4 exemption is based upon the crop change from apples to cannabis within an existing orchard. In addition, none of the conditions described in Section 15300.2 apply to this project.
