Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
State CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3), Common Sense Exemption
Reasons for Exemption
This exemption is appropriate where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity may have a significant effect on the environment. The proposed project includes the construction of a new service station with a new 2,129 square-foot single story convenience store and 2,100 square-foot fueling canopy with associated parking, landscaping, and signage. The proposed project also includes the demolition of the existing buildings. The proposed project scope is consistent with a project that has been determined to not have a significant effect on the environment and therefore exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15303-New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures (Class 3). However, a cleanup and abatement order issued by the Regional Water Quality Control Board disqualified it from this exemption. The Regional Water Quality Control Board closed the case in 2003 after issuing a "No Further Action Letter." A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment was conducted in February 2023 and found no reportable contamination in the soil, soil vapor, or ground water. Therefore, the proposed project qualifies for the Common Sense Exemption.
