Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Other: CEQA Exemption 15061 (b) (3) (General Rule)
Reasons for Exemption
The City of San Diego conducted an environmental review that determined the project would not have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. The project meets the criteria set forth in CEQA Section 15061 (b) (3) which states "the activity is covered by the common sense exemption that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment." This exemption further states "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." Since the project only proposes an amendment to the existing CUP with no changes to the permit or new development it was determined that the exemption is appropriate.
