Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
PRC Code 21155.4
Reasons for Exemption
This action requires demonstration that the project is consistent with a specific plan for which the City has prepared and certified an environmental impact report (EIR); each would be inapplicable if any of the circumstances identified in PRC section 21166 are present. PRC section 21155.4 requires, in addition, that the project must be in a transit-priority area and demonstrate consistency with the Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP/SCS) adopted by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG). The project satisfies each of the applicable requirements, is not subject to any exceptions, and would not have a significant effect on the environment. On February 11, 2011, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code §21000 et seq. ("CEQA"), the CEQA Guidelines (14 California Code of Regulations § 15000 et seq.), and the City of Sacramento environmental guidelines, the City Council approved an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and adopted Findings of Fact and Statement of Overriding Considerations and approved the River District Specific Plan. • The American River One Project ("project") is a mixed-use development project within the meaning of PRC section 21155.4(a). • The project is located in a transit priority area within the meaning of PRC section 21155.4(a)( l ). • The project is consistent with the River District Specific Plan as required by PRC section 2 l l 55.4(a)(2). • The project is consistent with the general use designation, density, building intensity, and applicable policies specified for the project area as set forth in the Sacramento Area Organization of Governments (SACOG) Metropolitan Transit Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, which has been accepted by the California Air Resources Board as achieving greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. There have been no substantial changes proposed in the specific plan that would require major changes in the RDSP EIR, or changes in the circumstances under which the EIR was prepared or new information that has become available.
