Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1
Reasons for Exemption
Section 15301 Existing Facilities (Class 1): The Class 1 Categorical Exemption consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, 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. Under Area Assignment AA-14-08, Shippers Transport was granted use of 392,839 sf. of paved property at Pier B for the storage of empty containers on chassis. The 1st Amendment to the Area Assignment reduces the premises from 392,839 sf. to 12,200 sf. for charging Shippers Transport electric trucks at existing charging stations previously installed under Harbor Development Permit 18-039 and determined to be categorically exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Existing Facilities), Section 15303 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures), and Section 15304 (Minor Alterations to Land). Storage of empty containers on chassis will be discontinued by the lessee. Therefore, the project involves negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. The Port has determined that none of the exceptions to the exemptions in the CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 foreclose the use of the categorical exemption CEQA Guidelines Section 15301. Existing Facilities; therefore the Project is exempt from CEQA and no further environmental review is required.
