Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
California Government Code § 65457, CEQA Guidelines Section 15182 (a)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is exempt from CEQA due to its conformity with the previously approved Elverta Specific Plan. The project would be required to implement all applicable mitigation as adopted as part of the approval of the Specific Plan. The proposed project would not increase the likelihood of the project to have a significant impact on an environmental resource. The proposed project would be subject to all previously adopted conditions of approval and mitigation measures. In reviewing the project level information provided for this project, and acting as Lead Agency, the County of Sacramento has analyzed the potential environmental impacts created by the proposed Elverta 59.5 North project and determined that the findings of CEQA Section 15162 concerning the decision not to prepare a subsequent EIR or negative declaration and the findings of California Government Code § 65457 (CEQA Guidelines Section 15182) concerning the decision to exempt the project from further CEQA review can be made in the affirmative. As supported by substantial evidence contained within this Notice of Exemption and associated consistency checklist, the Lead Agency makes the following findings: [ X ] No substantial changes are proposed in the project which would require major revisions of the previous EIR or Mitigated Negative Declaration. [ X ] No substantial changes have occurred with respect to the circumstances under which the project is undertaken. [ X ] There is no new information of substantial importance which was not known and could not have been known with the exercise of due diligence at the time the previous EIR was certified as complete or the Mitigated Negative Declaration was adopted. [ X ] Neither the proposed Project nor changed circumstances will require major revisions to the previous EIR due to the involvement of new significant environmental effects or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects. [ X ] The proposed project is consistent with California Government Code § 65457 (CEQA Guidelines Section 15182 (c)), and is therefore, exempt from CEQA.
