Parcels 175-221- 28-00 and 175-221-29-00 are adjoining vacant remnants of four (4) parcels that the City also acquired during the mid- 1990s as a part of a right-of-way acquisition for the purpose of relocating Vista Village Drive.

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Per § 15060(c)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines (i.e., California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Division 6, Chapter 3, §§ 15000-15387), this approval of the Notice of Availability of Surplus Land is exempt from CEQA because the actions associated with the notice will not result in a direct or indirect physical change in the environment and the actions described therein are not a "Project", as defined within § 15378 of the CEQA Guidelines. Adoption of the notice does not have the potential for resulting in either a direct or indirect physical change in the environment. If and when Parcels 175-221-28-00 and 175-221-29-00 are sold or leased and the new owner(s) or lessee(s) propose a use for Parcels 175-221-28-00 and 175-221-29-00 that requires a discretionary permit, the future use and project will be analyzed at the appropriate time in accordance with CEQA.
