Type, Section or Code

Reasons for Exemption
On February 14, 2024, the City of Los Angeles determined based on the whole of the administrative record that the Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21080(b)(1). The project was found to be exempt as a qualified Streamlined Infill Project that satisfies all of the objective planning standards and is therefore subject to the streamlined ministerial approval process provided under Government Code Section 65915. As a Density Bonus housing project that satisfies all the objective planning standards of Government Code Section 65915, approval of the project is ministerial and therefore statutorily exempt from CEQA and Public Resources Code Section 21080(b)(1). As such, the project is exempt from additional environmental review.
