Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 15301(c); Sec. 15332
Reasons for Exemption
Class 1 (CEQA Guidelines 15301), “consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use” and includes “[e]xisting…streets, sidewalks, gutters…and similar facilities.” The Willits sidewalk repairs, which repair existing City sidewalks and may include minor additions to existing sidewalks such as curb ramps that result in negligible or no expansion of use, fit squarely into the CEQA Class 1 category. Class 32 (CEQA Guidelines 15332) “consists of project characterized as in-fill development meeting the following: (a) the project is consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable general plan policies as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations; (b) the proposed development occurs within city limits on a project site of no more than five acres substantially surrounded by urban uses; (c) the project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species; (d) approval of the project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality; and (e) the site can be adequately served by all required utilities and public services.” The Willits sidewalk repairs qualify for the Class 32 Categorical Exemption as the Project is developed on an infill site (previously developed for qualified urban uses) or adjacent to qualified urban uses, and meets the conditions described in this section (Willits Sidewalk Repairs, Technical Memorandum No. 4: In-Fill Development Project Analysis for Purposes of CEQA Guidelines 15332, saved on file with the Bureau of Engineering).
