Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15061(b)(3), 15002, and 15283
Reasons for Exemption
The consideration and adoption of the Housing Element not a project pursuant to the CEQA. The consideration and adoption of the Housing Element is alternatively exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15002 as the adoption of the Housing element is a planning study and will not have any impacts to the environment. Further, to the extent the Regional Housing Needs determinations are made, the Project is further exempt pursuant to Section 15283, which provides "CEQA does not apply to regional housing needs determinations made by the Department of Housing and Community Development, a council of governments, or a city or county pursuant to Section 65584 of Government Code". A CEQA analysis will be conducted for any future zoning code amendments and/or development of specific projects when those are considered.
