Reasons for Exemption
Section 15315 (Class 15/Minor Land Divisions) exempts projects consisting of the division of property in urbanized areas zoned for residential, commercial, or industrial use into four or fewer parcels when the division is in conformance with the General Plan and zoning, no variances or exceptions are required, and all services and access to the proposed parcels to local standards are available, the parcel was not involved in a division of a larger parcel within the previous 2 years, and the parcel does not have an average slope greater than 20 percent. The project is zoned for commercial service in an urbanized area and involves the division of land of one parcel into two parcels. The project is consistent with General Plan and zoning regulations, no variances or exceptions are required as a result of this land division, and services and access to the proposed parcel is currently available. The parcel has not been included in any previous land divisions and the average slope of the parcel is less than 20 percent.
The proposed project will involve the creation of a parcel for mixed-use development purposes, which is an exemption characterized under Section 15315 (Class 15/Minor Land Divisions) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.
