Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Section 15301 (Existing Facilities) of the CEQA Guidelines exempts projects that consist of negligible expansion of an existing or former use, which includes, for example, additions to existing structures provided that the addition will not result in an increase of more than 50 percent of the floor area of the structures before the addition, or 2,500 square feet, whichever is less. The project consists of removing an existing wood shed and constructing a metal shed in its place that would be used for storage for an existing commercial business. The size of the proposed metal shed would be increased by approximately 930 square feet, which is a floor area increase of 25 percent compared to the existing wood shed that is to be removed. The project site has a Service Commercial General Plan Planned Land Use Designation, which was previously analyzed in the Reedley General Plan Program EIR. The project would be required to comply with general plan policies and mitigation measures addressed in the Reedley General Plan 2030 Program EIR (SCH# 2010031106), which would determine that the project would not result in any significant effects related to traffic, noise, air quality or water quality. The project is located in the city limits of Reedley and is on an approximately less than 1-acre site surrounded by urban uses. This project would be considered local serving retail. As such, the project would not significantly increase VMT in the surrounding area. Because the project site is in an urban area with active urban uses, there is no habitat for endangered species on the site. The project site is in an urban area which has a high level of disturbance within and adjacent to the project area, therefore it lacks suitable habitat for endangered species. The proposed project will involve the negligible expansion of an existing commercial storage shed, which is an exemption characterized under Section 15301 (Class 1/Existing Facilities) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.
