Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Sections 15061(b)(3) and 15183(d)
Reasons for Exemption
CEQA Guidelines §15061(b)(3) because it involves adoption of policies and programs that would not cause a significant effect on the environment. Proposed and existing zoning programs, including those to meet the RHNA shortfall, are exempt from CEQA per Section 15183(d) of the CEQA Guidelines, specifically: Rezoning to meet the RHNA Shortfall: Certification of Environment Impact Report (State Clearinghouse #2006022136; via Brisbane City Council Resolution 2018-61) and EIR Addendum for General Plan Amendment GPA-1-19 (adopted via Brisbane City Council Resolution 2020-1), which allows for development of up to 2,200 housing units on that same portion of the Baylands as indicated in the Housing Element. All other residential and mixed-use districts identified in the Housing Element are already designated for residential development in the City’s General Plan and zoning ordinance, for which an Environmental Impact Report was adopted in 1994 (SCH #93071072) and a negative declaration was adopted in 2015 relative to adoption of the Parkside Residential Overlay districts (SCH #2015012053).
