Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301
Reasons for Exemption
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the action is exempt from further review per State CEQA Guidelines Section 15391, Existing Facilities in that the proposed project consists of minor alterations to an existing commercial building not involving a change in land use intensity, with no negative effects on biologically sensitive resource~. Additionally, the Project does not involve a change in land use intensity. None of the exceptions to the categorical exemptions identified in CEQA Guidelines, section 15300.2 applies. The project site does not contain any environmentally sensitive areas in that the site is fully developed with an existing commercial building and is surrounded on all sides by public streets and developed properties, and the City's environmentally sensitive areas I-naps do not identify any such areas on-site or within the immediate Project vicinity. There will be no cumulative impact resulting from successive projects of the same type in the same place, over time, as the current request is limited to a building color change. There are no unusual circumstances resulting in a significant impact on the environment. There will be no damage to scenic resources, including trees, historic building 1 s, rock outcroppings or similar resources, within a highway officially designated as a state scenic highway. The Project is not located on a hazardous waste site or any other site included on a list compiled pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. Further, the project will not cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historic resource. Thus, the Class 1 categorical exemption applies.
