Document Description
The Project consists of an application for: 1. A Lot Line Adjustment (County Control Number PLNP2023-00271) to merge two lots 3740 & 3750 Happy Lane (APNs: 067-0980-007 and -008) and adjusting the lot line between the resulting parcel (Lot B) and 067-0980-006 (Lot A) thereby creating two lots from the existing 2.21-acre three lots zoned M-1. The resulting two lots will retain the M-1 zoning district classification. 2. A Special Development Permit to allow deviations from the following development standards: • Side yard setback (Zoning Code Section 5.6.2.A. Table 5.14) when adjacent to a single-family residential use is 24-feet. As currently proposed the setback next to residential use to the north would be 5 feet. • Trash enclosure setback (Zoning Code Section 5.6.2.A. Table 5.14) is 25 feet from any residentially zoned property, or property used for residential purposes. As currently proposed, the trash enclosure for Building D would have a 1.5-foot setback from the northern property line abutting residential use. 3. A Design Review to determine substantial compliance with the Sacramento County Countywide Design Guidelines (Design Guidelines). With the approval of the Lot Line Adjustment and the entitlements, the proposed project consists of the construction of two new industrial buildings on each resultant lot (20,400-sf & 9,600-sf), parking lots, storage/work yards, and site landscaping. The site would continue to be accessed from Happy Lane and would contain pedestrian connectivity to neighboring industrial buildings.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15183(a) – Projects Consistent with a Community Plan, General Plan, or Zoning.
Reasons for Exemption
State CEQA Guidelines Section 15183 (Public Resources Code §21083.3), provides that projects which are consistent with the development density established by a Community Plan, General Plan, or Zoning for which an environmental impact report (EIR) has been certified “shall not require additional environmental review, except as might be necessary to examine whether there are project-specific significant effects which are peculiar to the project or its site.” An EIR was prepared and certified by the Board of Supervisors for the Sacramento County General Plan (SCH# 2007082086) incorporated by reference and available at: . The proposed project is consistent with the development density and use characteristics considered by the General Plan EIR and Zoning Code for the Light Industrial land use designation. The project construction of two new industrial buildings, parking lots, storage/work yards, and site landscaping and associated entitlements would be consistent with the existing surrounding industrial buildings. New construction on the project site shall comply with County Code Title 16 (Building and Construction), land grading and erosion control (Chapter 16.44), and Title 22 (Land Development). No new impacts related to the project have been identified that would necessitate further environmental review beyond the impacts and issues already disclosed and analyzed in the General Plan EIR. No other special circumstances exist that would create a reasonable possibility that the project will have a significant adverse effect on the environment. Therefore, pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15183, no further environmental review is required.
