Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined that the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 1, Existing Facilities and Class 4, Minor Alterations to Land, categorical exemptions (CEQA Guidelines §15301 and §15304), because the activity consists of permitting existing private structures and facilities. No expansion of existing or former use will occur. The project consists of minor private alterations to land which do not involve the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 apply.
