Reasons for Exemption
Implementing the Project to change the definition of “bicycle” and “motor vehicle” within Ordinance 38 would have a negligible impact on existing facilities, such as highways, streets, sidewalks, gutters, bicycle and pedestrian trails, and similar facilities. The Project would include the continued use of existing trails and would not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. Implementation of the Project may include the minor structures accessory to (appurtenant to) existing commercial, industrial, or institutional facilities, including but not limited to on-premise signs.
