Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Categorical Exemption: Section 15305; Common Sense Exemption: Section 15061(b)
Reasons for Exemption
The amendments to the General Plan land use designations and zoning designations to correct errors are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act{CEQA) under CEQAGuidelines Section 15061(b){3) as it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that these changes may have a significant effect on the environment. The proposed amendments to the General Plan and zoning will only correct historical errors. No change in the physical environment would result because no development is proposed as part of the adjustments to land use and zoning designations, and because the amendments only implement the existing regulations. These updates are needed to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the General Plan Land Use Map and Official Zoning Database. Amendments to the General Plan land use designations and zoning designations to implement previously approved project conditions of approval were analyzed in compliance with CEQA as part of their originating project and at the time of project approval. These amendments are exempt from CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15305 {Class 5 ), minor alterations in land use limitations, because the amendments merely realign the General Plan land use boundaries and zoning boundaries to be coterminous with adjusted property lines.
