Consideration and possible action regarding an appeal filed by Tom Carey of Dickenson, Peatman & Fogarty, on behalf of their client, Mr. Bill Smith, to a partial denial by the Director of Public Works of a road improvement modification requested by the appellant in connection with the application for Use Permit # 02057-UP for a property located at 1181 Las Posadas Road, Angwin. (Assessor's Parcel No. 025-060-001)
ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: The appeal of the Director’s determination on the road modification is not a “project” as defined in CEQA Section 15378. Section 15378(c) sets forth that the term “project” refers to an activity which is being approved, and does not mean each separate governmental approval. In this case, the Board’s determination on the road modification merely establishes how existing regulations are being interpreted, and will not result, either directly or indirectly, in a physical change in the environment. This code interpretation is necessary to establish the scope of the “project” that will then be subject to CEQA evaluation.
