Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301 - Existing Facilities; Section 15302 - Replacement or Reconstruction
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is exempt according to CEQA Guidelines sections 15301 and 15302. Section 15301 exempts the conversion of existing facilities involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that of the existing use. Section 15302 exempts replacement or reconstruction where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced, including the replacement of a commercial structure with a new structure of substantially the same size, purpose, and capacity. The project converts an existing motel to single-room occupancy lodging within an existing structure. Expansions of the use are negligible in that three additional SRO rooms are substituted for commercial land uses via the elimination of a conference room, laundry facility, and public breakfast room. None of the exceptions in CEQA Guidelines section 15300.2 apply.
