Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
The Project is exempt from CEQA per Section 15332 “In-Fill Development Projects”. This exemption is for projects characterized as in-fill development meeting the following conditions: a) the Project is consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable General Plan policies, as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations; b) the proposed development occurs within city limits on a project site of no more than 5 acres substantially surrounded by urban uses; c) the project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species; d) approval of the Project would not result in any significant effects related to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality; and e) the site can be adequately served by all required utilities and public services. The proposed Project is consistent with the applicable General Plan, Specific Plan and Zoning Designations for the project site along with any applicable development standards. The Project is located within the City of Menifee boundaries and is surrounded on the north and west by an existing commercial center and to the east and south by existing residential developments. The Project will not result in any impacts to traffic, noise, air quality or water quality as a traffic memorandum was prepared noting a traffic study is not required, existing residential is screened from the car wash by landscaping and a perimeter block wall around the adjacent residential sites, no hazardous materials are proposed on site affecting air quality, and the Project has prepared a water quality plan to tie into the existing commercial center’s approved Water Quality Management Plan from when it was approved by the City of Menifee in 2015. Additionally, the site will be served by all required utilities, including power, water, and sewer. Therefore, the proposed Project is categorically exempt from CEQA under Section 15332 “In-Fill Development Projects”.
