Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Sections 15183-General Plan/Community Plan Exemption, 15168-Consistency with Program EIR, and Government
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed 840 San Bruno Avenue West Residential Development Project is consistent with the City of San Bruno Transit Corridors Plan (TCP) land use designation and zoning for the site and meets the streamlining provisions under CEQA Guidelines Section 15183(d)(1). It is consistent with the intent of the applicable TOD-2 MXD zoning as an infill, high density development near high quality transit and the development proposed by the project is within the scope of the development proposed by the TCP. Through the provision of the Sate Density Bonus Law (Government Code Section 65915), the Project is eligible for and avails of certain incentives/concessions and waivers of development standards that would not result in significant environmental effects beyond those analyzed in the Transit Corridors Plan EIR. The proposed project is a “later” activity of the Program EIRs and does not result in environmental effects that were not previously examined. As such, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15162 and 15163, no subsequent or supplemental EIR is required. In accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15168(c)(2), the City can “approve the activity as being within the scope of the project covered by the program EIR, and no new environmental document would be required.” Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines 15168(c)(3), which provides that “an agency shall incorporate all feasible mitigation measures and alternatives developed in the program EIR into later activities in the program.”, the City of San Bruno has incorporated all applicable mitigation measures of the TCP EIR as project conditions of approval.
