Reasons for Exemption
Public Resources Code Section 21080.17 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15282(h) which provide a statutory exemption for adoption of an ordinance by a city or county to implement the provisions of Government Code Section 65852.2, regarding permitting of accessory dwelling units. CEQA Guidelines Section 15305, Minor Alterations in Land Use Limitations, because the proposed change would not result in any changes in land use or density and is located on a site with an average slope of less than 20 percent.
The project is statutorily exempt because it implements the provisions of Government Code Section 65852.2 through adoption of an ordinance allowing accessory dwelling units. It is also exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15305 because it would allow the continued use of the parcel for low-density residential use, and would not alter the allowable density on the site. No exceptions listed under Section 15300.2 apply. There is no reasonable possibility that the project would have a significant effect on the environment.
