Reasons for Exemption
Board staff has determined the project is exempt from CEQA under the Class 4, Minor Alterations to Land categorical exemption (CEQA California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section § 15304), because the activity consists of minor private alteration in landscaping which does not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. Further, none of the exceptions to the exemption in CEQA Guidelines § 15300.2 apply.
Board staff has determined that the portion of the application related to changing the name of the permittee does not have the potential to result in either a direct physical change in the environment or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment, and thus, is not a “project” for purposes of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code § 21065; CEQA Guidelines § 15378(a)).
