Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15308 (Class 8)/ Section 15061(b)(3), Common Sense Exemption
Reasons for Exemption
The Proposed Ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act of 1970 (CEQA), pursuant to Article 19, Section 15308, Class 8, “consists of actions taken by regulatory agencies, as authorized by state or local ordinance, to assure the maintenance, restoration, enhancement, or protection of the environment where the regulatory process involves procedures for protection of the environment. The Proposed Ordinance is also consistent with CEQA Guidelines, Article 19, Section 15061(b)(3), Common Sense Exemption that “applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.” Continuance of trucking-related uses will further expand trucking-related impacts to public health and adversely impact the environment. The Proposed Ordinance does not increase environmental impacts, instead it reduces impacts that are caused by trucking activities.
