Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15183 (Consistent with General Plan)
Reasons for Exemption
Pursuant to Section 15183 of the CEQA Guidelines, where a project is consistent with the use and density established for a property under an existing general plan or zoning ordinance for which the city has already certified an EIR, additional environmental review is not required “except as might be necessary to examine whether there are project-specific significant effects which are peculiar to the project or its site.” As set forth by Sections 15168 and 15183 of the CEQA Guidelines, the program EIR, in this case the City’s General Plan EIR. The proposed project is consistent with the General Plan land use designation of Commercial and Zoning designation of C (General Commercial) District. Through a Modified Initial Study, the City determined that the proposed project would not result in a significant impact that: (1) is peculiar to the project or the project site; (2) was not identified as a significant effect in the General Plan EIR; or (3) are previously identified significant effects, which as a result of substantial new information that was not known at the time that the General Plan EIR was certified, are determined to have a more severe adverse impact than discussed in the General Plan EIR. Therefore, based on Section 15183, further environmental review is not required for the proposed project.
