Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
155304-Minor Alterations; 155333-Small Habitat Restoration Project
Reasons for Exemption
Solano RCD staff conducted a biological assessment and determined that project activities will not cause significant adverse impact to special status species. Weed control efforts will be targeted and soil disturbance will be minimal. Repeat plant and wildlife surveys will be conducted prior to any potentially disruptive activities. Planting areas are currently dominated by non-native annual grasses, fennel and thistles and are not managed in any way. The project will enhance the site with native plants that will provide biological diversity and habitat structure for wildlife.
