Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sections 15378 and 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The proposal is an administrative activity that will not result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change to the environment and is thus not a “project” under State CEQA Guidelines section 15378. Alternatively, even if the proposal did qualify as a project under CEQA, the proposal is still exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the State CEQA Guidelines, which provides that a project is exempt from CEQA where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. The proposal does not authorize any construction or development; it provides clarification to the mixed-use/residential overlay district and provides additional incentives for affordable-housing development in the Aliso Viejo Municipal Code to comply with the adopted Housing Element.
