Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The 2023-2031 Housing Element would not result in any direct or indirect physicaI changes to the environment. The Housing Element update is strictly a policy document and does not provide entitlements to any specific land use projects. The Housing Element Update does not make any changes to the General Plan land use map and would not modify any land use designations, allowed densities, or land use intensities established by the General Plan. The proposed project does not entitle, propose, or otherwise require the construction of new development or rehabilitation of existing development, but rather includes goals and policies to facilitate the development, preservation, and rehabilitation of housing consistent with existing and proposed uses identified in the General Plan and as mandated to be allowed under State law. All future housing development projects will be reviewed pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act. The revisions would not result in any changes to the intensities or densities of allowed uses beyond those allowed by the General Plan and those standards currently required by State law. Therefore, the Housing Element Update is exempt from the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEOA) as set forth in Section 1506l(b)(3) of the State CEQA Guidelines.
