Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class I, CCR 15301
Reasons for Exemption
For Class 1 exemption where repair, maintenance, or minor alterations of existing public structure involves negligible or no expansion of existing use. The proposed project is routine maintenance and repair of an existing building - technology upgrades included with elevator replacement do not require significant change to building integrity, and the overall project to replace existing elevator would be needed as preventative maintenance regardless. This project does not have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.
