Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Categorical Exemption (15301) and Other: 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed use has been determined to be Categorically Exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and CEQA Guidelines, Section 15301, Existing Facilities. Class 1 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. Class 1 includes the following example of a project that would be exempt under this section: (c) [minor alterations to] Existing highways and streets, sidewalks, gutters, bicycle and pedestrian trails, and similar facilities (this includes road grading for the purpose of public safety), and other alterations such as the addition of bicycle facilities, including but not limited to bicycle parking, bicycle-share facilities and bicycle lanes, transit improvements such as bus lanes, pedestrian crossings, street trees, and other similar alterations that do not create additional automobile lanes. 3rd Street is an existing roadway facility. The project is for the minor alteration of an existing paved road and includes roadway resurfacing, addition of sidewalks and accessible ramps (ADA compliant curb ramps) for improvement of public safety, all within existing City ROW. No additional automobile lanes will be created by the project. The proposed project is the minor alteration of an existing public facility (City street) involving a negligible expansion of the existing use. The project is exempt per Section 15301. The proposed project is also exempt under the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA (Section 15061(b)(3)). There is no possibility that the activity in question will have a significant effect on the environment because the proposed project is occurring in an area that is heavily disturbed and is not environmentally sensitive.
