Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15301, Class 1 Existing Facilities, as it consists of the repair, maintenance and minor alteration of existing deteriorated and damaged public structures, facilities and mechanical equipment to meet current standards of public health and safety, involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. On a separate and independent basis, the project is also categorically exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15303, Class 3 New Construction, for new construction and location of a new small structure (carport). The project is also categorically exempt from CEQA, on a separate and independent basis, under CEQA Guidelines Section 15304, Class 4 Minor Alterations to Land, for minor alterations to land, including grading on land with a slope less than 10 percent. None of the exceptions to the exemptions pursuant to CEQA Section 15300.2 apply and there are no unusual circumstances creating the possibility that the project will have a significant effect on the environment, pursuant to CEQA Section 15300.2.
