Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
§15302 Class 2, Replacement or Reconstruction, §15303 Class 3, New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures, §1531
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project would replace the existing driveways and pedestrian walkways on the project site with new driveways, a pick-up/drop-off loop and pedestrian walkways/plaza along with associated improvements (landscaping, medians, monument, etc.) that would serve a similar purpose and function as the current driveways, pedestrian walkways, and associated site improvements that currently exist on the project site. The proposed project would not increase enrollment nor enrollment capacity at Santa Ana College. Therefore, the proposed project is categorically exempt under classes 2, 3, and 11. The demolition of Russell Hall was evaluated and approved in 2012. The proposed project was reviewed for possible exceptions under Section 15300.2 and found that the exceptions do not apply.
