Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15303 (New Construction)
Reasons for Exemption
The City of San Diego conducted an environmental review and determined that the project would qualify to be categorically exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15303 (New Construction). Section 15303 allows for the installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure. Since the project would only install small new equipment associated with construction of a new WCF on the rooftop of an existing apartment building the exemption was deemed appropriate. No environmental impacts would occur and none of the exceptions described in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 apply.
