Reasons for Exemption
Categorically exempt from CEQA pursuant to CEQA State Guidelines, Sections
15301 (Existing Facilities) and 15304 (Minor Alterations to Land). Specifically, the removal of existing concrete, planter, private walk ramp, drain, and wall would be considered minor alterations to an existing facility no expansion of use pursuant to CEQA State Guidelines Section 15301. The installation of erosion control netting, Revised May 2018 hydroseeding, and installation of a drain in accordance with City of San Diego Standards would be considered the addition of a safety or health protection device in association with existing structures and topographical features per CEQA State Guidelines Section 15301 (f). These proposed changes are also considered minor alterations to land pursuant to CEQA State Guidelines Section 15304 considering the associated minimal affects and lack of effects to scenic trees. The project is not subject to any exceptions listed in CEQA State Guidelines Section 15300.2, as it would not result in a significant cumulative impact, significant effect on the environment, damage to a scenic highway, substantial adverse change to a historic resource, and would not be located on a hazardous waste site pursuant to Section 65962.5 of the Government Code.
