Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Categorial Exemption (Section 15301)
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Existing Facilities). Section 15301 applies to projects that consist 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. The Project site is a previously-developed parcel that contains an existing office building along with associated site improvements including parking, lighting, and landscaping. Former uses at the site include a beauty parlor, learning center, a mortgage broker, and other various office uses. The Project involves negligible expansion of use because it involves a Conditional Use Permit to allow a tattoo studio with accessory retail sales use (personal services, restricted) within the existing building, which is a similar use with similar impacts to the uses previously located on the site. No exterior improvements are proposed. All activities would occur within the facility and would be screened from public view. The Project site includes adequate parking for the proposed use. The Project site is in an area where all public services and facilities are available and is not environmentally sensitive. No special circumstances exist that would create a reasonable possibility that granting a Conditional Use Permit would create a significant adverse effect on the environment.
