Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15303 New Construction
Reasons for Exemption
The City of San Diego determined that the project would qualify to be categorically exempt from CEQA pursuant to 15303, New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures; and where the exceptions listed in Section 15300.2 would not apply. The project meets the criteria set forth in CEQA Section 15303, which consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new small facilities or structures. Since CEQA Section 15303 allows for the construction of a single-family residence in urbanized areas, utility extensions, of reasonable lengths to serve such construction, and accessory (appurtenant) structures, this exemption was deemed appropriate. The site is not included on any list compiled pursuant to Government Code Section 65962.5 for hazardous waste sites.
