NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Marina 2023-2031 Housing Element Update (HEU) would amend the Marina General Plan and the current Housing Element with the proposed 2023-2031 Housing Element. The proposed HEU would establish programs, policies, and actions to further the goal of meeting the existing and projected housing needs of all income levels of households in the Marina community, and provides evidence of the City’s ability to accommodate its Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) through the year 2031. The proposed HEU is a policy document and the City of Marina anticipates meeting its RHNA requirements for the 2023-2031 planning period without the need to rezone areas of the city.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Common Sense Exemption (Section 15061[b][3])
Reasons for Exemption
The HEU is a policy document that would replace the City’s current Housing Element with the programs, policies, and actions proposed therein. The HEU does not include specific development projects; rather, it establishes policies and a housing plan to accommodate the 6th cycle RHNA. Additionally, the HEU would not require zoning or land use changes as part of its adoption or implementation, which could result in physical changes to the environment. Therefore, it would not facilitate increased development beyond what is allowed in the existing General Plan. Because the activity in question would involve adoption of a policy document which does not, in and of itself, include any proposed development, and would not require rezoning or facilitate development beyond what is currently allowed in the City’s General Plan, there is no possibility that the HEU would have a significant effect on the environment, and it is not subject to CEQA.
