Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Not approval of a project-PRC 21080(a); Common-Sense-15061(b)(3); Class 1 Categorical-15301; Time of Preparation-15004
Reasons for Exemption
This action does not constitute a decision by the University regarding further development of the property. This action serves an essential role of securing land while the University determines its proposed uses for the property and a CEQA determination for the development of the site is performed. The University will make no decision to undertake further development until it has complied with CEQA and an overall site development plan has been approved and the University decision-maker retains full discretion with respect to the Property including imposition of mitigation measures and alternative uses for the property, including sale. The Proposed Action is exempt from the CEQA as it: (1) involves a land acquisition that is contingent on future CEQA compliance per CEQA Guidelines §15004; (2) does not constitute a “project” “approval” under CEQA; (3) it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment per CEQA Guidelines §15061; and (4) the Class 1 Existing Facilities Categorical Exemption applies per CEQA Guidelines §15301.
