Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, CEQA Guidelines Section 15301, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
None of the exceptions listed in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2, which would prohibit the use of a categorical exemption, apply to the project. The Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) units would be placed within developed surface parking lots or existing parking structures. The ALPR units are small and would not be a substantial new element in BART parking facilities. Installation of the ALPR units would only require minor extensions of power and communications infrastructure. No expansion of current parking space or current use is proposed.
