Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 32, §15332
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is categorically exempt under Class 32 (In-Fill Development Projects), having met the conditions set forth in CEQA Guidelines §15332. The Project would fall under Class 32 as it is characterized as in-fill development on a less-than-1-acre site on the Fresno State campus, which is in the City of Fresno in a predominantly urban area. The Project is a University-related use on the main Fresno State campus that is consistent with other the surrounding uses on campus and as shown on the campus Master Plan. Specifically, the Master Plan identifies the vicinity of the Project site as the planned site of student residences. The Project site contains an existing fenced parking lot with surrounding landscaping including grass lawn and ornamental trees, and contains no value as habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species. The Project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality, and can be adequately served by existing utilities with new service connections provided for the new building. Additionally, the Project does not meet any of the exceptions for taking a categorical exemption, listed under CEQA Guidelines §15300.2.
