Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b) (3)
Reasons for Exemption
On November 15, 2022, the City Council approved the project and found that regarding adoption of Ordinance No. O-2022-11 and Resolution No. R-2022-80, that those actions are exempt from environmental review and directed Staff to file a Notice of Exemption, pursuant to CEQA Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines, Section 21065 of the Public Resources Code, and the City of Placentia Local Guidelines for implementing CEQA. The City Council found that that a Common Sense Exemption (as defined in CEQA) applies to the project under Section 15061 (b) (3) of the State CEQA Guidelines, which states: “The activity is covered by the common sense exemption that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA.”). The project as described above has been determined to not fall under the jurisdiction of CEQA and the State CEQA Guidelines because this action will not result in any physical changes to the environment, it only adopts updated Fire and Building related Codes.
