BART Police Department Administrative Headquarters Relocation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The BART Police Department generally has approximately 410 officers and staff that work to ensure the security of BART patrons and facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Since 2018, the BART Police Department Administrative Headquarters has been temporarily located at 101 8th Street in Oakland near Lake Merritt Station. BART intends to relocate its administrative headquarters to an existing office building at 2000 Broadway in Oakland. The five-story building was formerly used for commercial office space. The site includes a 30-space parking garage and a 75-space surface parking lot adjacent to the building. Although the interior of the building would require renovation and upgrade, no substantial changes are planned for the exterior of the building.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Section 15301, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
None of the exceptions listed in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2, which would prohibit the use of a categorical exemption, apply to the project. The relocation is necessary to meet current standards for the effective operation of a modern police department. There would be no expansion of the space to be acquired. The planned administrative uses are consistent with local zoning and the local commercial-office district. No disruption of existing transit service would take place.
