Reasons for Exemption
The project site has a Neighborhood Commercial Planned Land Use Designation. The project site has a Neighborhood Commercial Zoning Designation and is consistent with the General Plan Land Use Designation, which was previously analyzed in the Reedley General Plan Program EIR. The project would be required to comply with general plan policies and mitigation measures addressed in the Reedley General Plan 2030 Program EIR (SCH# 2010031106), which would determine that the project would not result in any significant effects related to traffic, noise, air quality or water quality. The project is proposed to be a 2,574 square foot drive-through restaurant that occurs in the city limits of Reedley and is on an approximately 1-acre site surrounded by urban uses. This project would be considered local serving retail. Patrons of drive-through facilities are typically people who live in the area of the drive-through or who drive by the area regularly. Therefore, these patrons would not contribute to an increase in VMT. It is possible that the drive-through may slightly reduce VMT in the City due to offering another drive-through restaurant option that may be closer to some neighborhoods than others, thereby allowing customers to not drive as far to visit such an establishment. As such, the project would not significantly increase VMT in the surrounding area. In addition, the proposed drive-through would not result in substantial adverse impacts to the existing circulation system or conflict with adopted policies, plans, or programs intended to facilitate the adequate operation of the City’s circulation system. Because the project site is in an urban area, there is no habitat for endangered species on the site. The project site is in an urban area which has a high level of disturbance within and adjacent to the project area, therefore it lacks suitable habitat for endangered species. Public services and facilities are available for the site and the subject property is located at the intersection of two fully built out collector and major arterial streets.
