Class 1, California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 15301(c) and (f); Class 2 15302 (c); Class 4 15304 (a) 4
Reasons for Exemption
The project anticipates the improvements to the existing roadway to increase pedestrian accessibility and vehicular safety. The project will result in developing the road to its ultimate width as identified in the General Plan. The project would provide safer roadways and pedestrian controls along the existing right-of-way (ROW). The project site is already improved in a developed urbanized area of the City of Hanford and does not contain suitable habitat for significant biological resources. No cultural or scenic resources were identified on the site. The project site does not contain a listed hazardous material/waste facility. Construction will be conducted within existing ROW and easements and on previously disturbed land. The anticipated construction efforts of the project are not expected to exceed SJVAPCD criteria pollutant thresholds and will comply with SJVAPCD rules and regulations for construction activities including fugitive dust emission control measures. Therefore, the project will not result in a significant environmental impact.
