San Francisco Fell Street DMV Field Office Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) proposes to demolish the existing two-story DMV field office at 1377 Fell Street in San Francisco, California and construct a single-story facility of a similar size. The proposed project consists of the demolition of the existing 24,000 square foot, two-story field office and construction of a new field office on the same 2.47-acre site. The proposed maximum 20,000 square foot single-story building would be a maximum 36 feet high as measured from the finish floor elevation to the top of the roof; this represents a decrease in overall useable floor space and a 7-foot height increase compared to the existing DMV field office which is approximately 29 feet high. The existing field office currently occupies a 15,500 square foot footprint, while the proposed field office would occupy a maximum 20,000 square foot footprint. See attached Project Description, Attachment 1, for more information.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Replacement of Reconstruction (15302)
Reasons for Exemption
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. An Initial Study (IS) has been prepared to evaluate whether the Class 2 exemption applies to the project and to determine whether any exceptions to the Class 2 exemption would not apply, pursuant to Sections 15300.2 and 15302 of the CEQA Guidelines. The Project Description demonstrates that the project would be located at the same site and would replace a structure with a new structure that has substantially the same purpose and capacity as the replaced structure. The IS concluded that the proposed project would not potentially affect any environmental factors pursuant to the CEQA Guidelines and no mitigation measures would be required. Therefore, the Class 2 exemption is applicable; see attached Project Description (Attachment 1) and IS (Attachment 2).
