Reasons for Exemption
The project is consistent with the criteria for a Class 1 and Class 32 Categorical Exemption pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15331 and does not require further analysis based on the exceptions in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2, and thus, DCR finds that no further CEQA analysis is required.

No relief has been requested from any applicable provision or requirement of the Los Angeles Municipal Code. The subject site is wholly within the City of Los Angeles, on an approximately 59,997 gross square foot property (i.e., less than five acres), and is substantially surrounded by urban uses. The surrounding area is zoned Limited Manufacturing/MR1-1; Low I Residential/RS1; and, Low Medium I Residential/RD5, and developed with a mix of commercial building, single family and multi-family dwellings along N. Topanga Canyon Blvd between Plummer Street (to the north) and Nordhoff Street (to the south), respectively. The project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species. The project is located within an established, fully developed, neighborhood. The project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare or threatened species. The project does not propose the removal of any trees on-site and/or within the adjacent public right-of-way. Approval of the project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality. The site can be adequately served by all required utilities and public services. The project site will be adequately served by all required public utilities and services, given that the site is currently served by the City's Department of Water and Power, the City's Bureau of Sanitation, the Southern California (SoCal) Gas Company, the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Unified School District, Los Angeles Public Library, and other public services. These utilities and public services have continuously served the neighborhood for more than 40 years.

Based on the facts herein, it can be found that the project meets the qualifications of the Class 1 and Class 32 Exemptions.
