Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 3
Reasons for Exemption
Section 15303(d) New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures (Class 3): The Class 3 Categorical Exemption consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure. The project involves the installation of a temporary shade-canopy structure and pallet rack used as storage to support the construction laydown yard. Temporary water service will be established by securing a firehose to an existing onsite metered fire hydrant to provide water for construction use. The Port has determined that none of the exceptions to the exemptions in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15300.2 foreclose the use of Categorical Exemption CEQA Guidelines Section 15303 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures); therefore the Project is exempt from CEQA and no further environmental review is required.
