Reasons for Exemption
The proposed residential development would be consistent with all applicable land use designations, regulations, and policies and would be located on a fully developed 2.2-acre site that is surrounded by existing urban development within the City of San Carlos city limits.

An Initial Study was prepared for the project which found that the project would result in less than significant traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality impacts or these impacts would be less than significant impact with implementation of conditions of approval and compliance with existing regulations and policies. The Initial Study also found that the proposed residential project would be adequately served by all required utilities and public services.
