Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Section 15301, Section 15302, Class 2 and Section 15303, Class 3
Reasons for Exemption
The effects of the Proposed Project are Categorically Exempt from the requirements to prepare additional environmental documentation per CEQA Guidelines, Section 15301, Class 1 (Existing Facilities); Section 15302, Class 2 (Replacement or Reconstruction); and Section 15303, Class 3 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures). The Class 1 exemption consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, and/or minor alteration of existing public or private structures or facilities, involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of this determination. The Proposed Project includes remodeling and ongoing use of an existing school building and ancillary site improvements, with no physical expansion beyond existing conditions. The Class 2 exemption consists of replacement or reconstruction of existing structures and facilities where the new structure will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and will have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure replaced. The exemption includes the replacement or reconstruction of school facilities to provide earthquake resistant structures which do not increase capacity by more than 50 percent. The Proposed Project will retrofit the existing buildings to meet Category 3 seismic requirements pursuant to the California Building Code and will not increase capacity. The Class 3 exemption consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures up to 10,000 square feet in urbanized areas on sites zoned for such use if not involving the use of significant amounts of hazardous substances where all necessary public services and facilities are available, and the surrounding area is not environmentally sensitive. The Proposed Project will include a new wall/fence, accessibility ramp, and outdoor lunch patio. The Proposed Project will not use any hazardous substances, is located on a fully developed site that is serviced by all public services and is not located in a designated environmentally sensitive area. Pursuant to Section 15300.2 (c) and 15301, 15302, and 15303 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, there are no unusual circumstances with respect to the Proposed Project for which staff would anticipate a significant effect on the environment and, therefore, the Proposed Project would be categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
