Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15332 (Class 32, In-fill Development Projects)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed Project is consistent with the applicable general plan designation and all applicable general plan policies as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations. The proposed Project is located within the Downtown Mixed Use land use designation of the Policy Plan (general plan) Land Use Map, and the MU-1 (Downtown Mixed Use) zoning district. The proposed Project is consistent with all applicable Policy Plan policies, as well as with the requirements of the MU-1 (Downtown Mixed Use) zoning district and the related proposed Downtown Ontario Luxury Apartments, Phase II Planned Unit Development, which, at the Project location, intends to accommodate housing units at a density of 25 to 75 du/ac. The proposed development occurs within city limits on a project site of no more than five acres substantially surrounded by urban uses. The Project is proposed within the established boundaries of the City of Ontario, on a project site totaling 1.22-acres of land, which is surrounded by established development on all sides and consists of a mix of multiple-family, civic, retail, and commercial land uses. The Project site has no value as habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species. The site is located in an urbanized area, is devoid of any flora or fauna, is regularly used for passenger vehicle parking by neighboring residents, and as such not suitable habitat for any endangered, rare, or threatened species. Approval of the Project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality. The residential development is similar to, and of no greater impact than other allowed uses and development projects within the MU-1 (Downtown Mixed Use) zoning district. The Project would not result in any significant impacts through implementation of required state, regional, and local development and performance standards, and as demonstrated in the GHG and Traffic analysis, noise and parking studies, Arborist Report, and the Preliminary Water Quality Management Plan ("PWQMP") prepared for the Project. The site is adequately served by all required utilities and public services. All necessary wet and dry utilities are within the public street and are readily available for connection; and the application of the categorical exemption is not barred by one of the exceptions set forth in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2.
