Reasons for Exemption
The Department of Cannabis Control has determined that the project is a Class 3 Categorical Exemption project. CEQA Guidelines Section 15303 exempts new construction or conversion of small structures including commercial structures, accessory structures, and water, electrical, gas, and other utility extensions including street improvements. This project involves the change of use from a physical therapy office to a cannabis dispensary. The design, location, size, and operating characteristics of the Project are compatible with the existing and future land uses within the vicinity. None of the exceptions to the exemption defined in Section 15300.2 apply to the Project.
