Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Existing Facilities [Section 15301]
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Existing Facilities). Section 15301 applies to projects that consist of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. The Project involves no negligible expansion of use because it involves a Minor Conditional Use Permit to allow for specialized education and training within an existing building. The proposed use is conditionally allowed in the Light Industrial (LI) zone. The Project site is surrounded by other industrial and office uses to the north and east, undeveloped land to the west, and commercial to the south. All activity will occur within the existing building. The Project site includes adequate parking for the proposed use. The Project site is in an area where all public services and facilities are available and is not environmentally sensitive. No special circumstances exist that would create a reasonable possibility that granting a Minor Conditional Use Permit would create a significant adverse effect on the environment
