Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301 and 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Mitigated Negative Declaration #2023-018 has been completed for CUP #2022-005. This analysis considered the addition of 137 rest and overnight truck parking spaces, 12 spaces for new or used truck and trailer sales, and a 12,860 square foot truck lube, tire sales, and service center repair facility. In accordance with CEQA Section 15301, Existing Facilities, the project involves the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features with negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. The types of "existing facilities" listed are not exhaustive. The key consideration is whether the project involves negligible or no expansion of use. The project also meets CEQA Section 15061 (b)(3), that if it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. The amendment proposes to increase the facility by 3,459 square feet and to add 14 additional parking stalls for the sale of used trucks and trailers. This amended project meets the requirements for a CEQA exemption under Section 15301 for Existing Facilities and Section 15061 Review For Exemption as the increase in footprint is negligible.
