Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Sections 15305; 15311
Reasons for Exemption
The Project qualifies for the following exemptions which have been determined to not have a significant effect on the environment, and they are declared categorically exempt from the requirement for the preparation of environmental documents. Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15305 (Minor Alterations in Land Use Limitations) and Section 15311 (Accessory Structures) the proposed project meets the following criteria: 1. The Project includes the proposal for an administrative adjustment requesting a reduction of on-site parking by 9 spaces. In doing so, the project will not trigger an expansion of the current land use or density. 2. The Project involves review of a Minor Plot Plan for the construction of an equipment enclosure, which would be accessory to an existing industrial facility. 3. Furthermore, none of the exceptions listed under CEQA Guidelines section 15300.2 apply to the proposed project. The project will not result in a cumulative impact from successive projects of the same type in the same place, over time, given the proposed project is consistent with the General Plan policies which were addressed in the General Plan Final EIR. There are no unusual circumstances surrounding the proposed project that would result in a reasonable possibility of a significant effect on the environment in that the area of impact is already disturbed and improved with an existing, permitted industrial use and all proposed changes would occur within previously disturbed areas. The project will not damage scenic resources, including trees, historic buildings, rock outcroppings or similar resources as the area of impact has already been disturbed. The project area is not environmentally sensitive as it has already been developed.
