Text Amendment No. PA-2200212
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
A General Plan Text Amendment to amend Section 3.1 Community Development Element pertaining to the locational criteria and size requirements for the Agriculture Industrial (A/I) General Plan designation. The amendments would further clarify where the designation is permitted, while adding additional locations on or near identified state routes and also potentially allowing the application of the designation to parcels larger than 20 acres in size that are no longer viable for agricultural purposes. The A/I designation would also be added to the Land Use Designation table in the same section.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
This project is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) per CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3). Section 15061(b)(3) states that “CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA.” This project has no potential for causing a significant effect on the environment because it is a General Plan Text Amendment to clarify the locational criteria for an existing land use designation, and any projects applied for under this designation would be reviewed on an individual basis for compliance with CEQA, as necessary. The General Plan Text Amendment will not have a significant effect on the environment and, therefore, the project is not subject to CEQA.
