Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 5 Section 15305; Class 8 Section 15308
Reasons for Exemption
The City Council finds and determines that this Ordinance is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§15000, et seq., "CEQA"), and the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 California Code of Regulations §§15000, et seq., the "CEQA Guidelines") because it consists of revisions and clarifications to an existing code of construction-related regulations and specification of procedures related thereto being taken for enhanced protection of the environment and while there may be added infrastructure resulting from the implementation of the Reach Codes, it does not have the potential to cause significant effects on the environment; to the contrary, the transition from fossil fuel sources is part of the State of California’s overall plan to decrease GHG emissions from stationary and transportation sources. Adoption of the Ordinance is categorically exempt in accordance with CEQA Guidelines §15305 as a minor alteration in land use limitations which do not result in any changes in land use or density and is exempt under CEQA Guidelines §15308 as an action taken by a regulatory agency as authorized by California law to assure maintenance or protection of the environment.
