Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Section 15301, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
The project qualifies for Class 1 exemption which allows for repair, replace, and maintenance of mechanical equipment and existing public facilities to meet current standards of safety where it involves no or negligible expansion of use. The Metro State Hospital is a historic era facility which meets the criteria for listing in the NRHP and CRHR, however the project lies outside of the historic district and while the project is within sight of the district, the limited exterior scope of work will not have an adverse effect on the district. Project plans and specifications were reviewed by a qualified Preservation Architect and confirmed compliant with Secretary of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation of Historic Resources where required. The State has confirmed no exceptions to the exemption apply.
