Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15061 (b)(C)(3)(General Ruble), 15304 (Minor Alterations to Land) and 15332 (in Fill)
Reasons for Exemption
The City of San Diego determined that the project would qualify to be categorically exempt from CEQA pursuant to sections 15061 (b)(c)(3) which allows for projects to be exempt from CEQA when it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. Since there is no development associated with the Vacation Easement and the Vacation Easement would not permit any development the exemption is appropriate. 15304 allows for minor or public alterations in the condition of land, water and or vegetation and do not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees or agricultural purposes to be exempt from CEQA. Since there Is no development associated with the project that would impact land, water, and vegetation and would not involve the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees or agricultural purposes the exemption is appropriate. Section 15332 allows for in fill projects to be exempt from CEQA when they are consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable general plan polices as well as with the applicable zoning designation and regulations; and the project site occurs within City limits on a project site of no more than five acres, is substantially surrounded by development and has no value as habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species. Therefore, it was determined that the CEQA exemption was appropriate the exceptions listed in Section 15300.2 would not apply. R-314 43 2
