Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, Existing Facilities
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15301, Class 1, Existing Facilities because it consists of the alteration of an existing structure and involves negligible expansion of existing or former uses, and therefore, it can be seen with certainty that the OR Integration Modernization will not have a significant impact on the environment. None of the exceptions to the exemption apply (CEQA Guideline Section 15300.2).
