Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed action complies with CEQA because it is subject to the common sense exemption, because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that it may have a significant effect on the environment (Section 15061 (b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines) because these minor amendments do not cause substantive changes to the uniform licensing procedure or cannabis facility regulations and have no potential to cause a physical change in the environment. None of the exceptions to the exemptions apply (Section 15300.2 of the CEQA Guidelines) because the ordinance does not authorize, ban or exempt any development and therefore will not cause impacts to scenic highways, hazardous waste sites or historical resources. In addition, see Attachment A of the Resolution of the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors Adopting the Ordinance Amendment, dated October 26,2022.
