Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
California Public Resources Code Section 21080.25
Reasons for Exemption
The 66th Ave BART to Bay trail project is exempt from environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 21080.25, which exempts pedestrian and bicycle facilities that improve safety, access, or mobility, including new facilities, in a public right of way. The 66th Ave BART to Bay Trail Project will create an off-street bicycle and pedestrian route that will improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians along a stretch of 66th Avenue. The Project meets the criteria set forth at Section 21080.25(c) for use of this exemption: (1) the Project is being carried out by a local agency, the City of Oakland, that is also the lead agency; (2) when constructed, the Project will install a multi-use off street pathway, modify freeway on and off-ramps to facilitate safe pathway crossings, all with the intent of reducing single-occupancy vehicle trips; the Project will not add highway capacity or lanes, and (3) the Project will not require the demolition of affordable housing units.
