Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines section 15301 (Existing Facilities)
Reasons for Exemption
The project is categorically exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15301 (Existing Facilities) because the project is a request to utilize a developed lot to carry out hazardous waste transfer facility operations. The request does not include an addition of more than 10,000 square-feet, and all public services are available to support the proposed use. The hazardous materials will be in sealed DOT approved containers and stored inside a cargo container, no pouring, repackaging or pumping will take place on-site, and there is a minimal risk of spill. Applicant has provided operational and safety protocols to be implemented in the event of spill. The property is already developed and no sensitive species or vegetation are on site. Additionally, the nearest sensitive receptor to the property (residential use), is over 2,000 feet away, as required by the development standards of the H-C-O zone. With the implementation of the Conditions of Approval and adherence to all state, local, and federal regulations for hazardous waste transfer facilities, no significant environmental effects are anticipated through the approval of this project.
