Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
California Public Resources Code (PRC) § 21080.25(b)(1)
Reasons for Exemption
The project qualifies for exemption described in PRC § 21080.25, as explained below. a)PRC § 21080.25(b) – The project will implement a new pedestrian and bicycle facility with the purpose of improving safety, access, and mobility for residents and visitors utilizing active transportation modes on the Islands. The project will involve the implementation of a Class I multi-use path along existing roads, and construction and implementation of the project would be located entirely within existing public rights-of-way. b)PRC § 21080.25(c)(1) – The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is carrying out the project, and is the CEQA lead agency for the project. c)PRC § 21080.25(c)(2) – The project will not involve the modification of any existing highways, and will not induce single-occupancy vehicle trips. It is anticipated that implementation of the project would reduce single-occupancy vehicle trips since it will encourage non-motorized transportation modes. d)PRC§ 21080.25(c)(3) – The project will be located entirely within existing public rights-of-way for Hillcrest and Treasure Island Roads, and would therefore not result in the demolition of buildings, including affordable housing units.
