To: County Clerk, J. Baker                 From: South Coast Air Quality Management District
     County of Los Angeles                         21865 Copley Drive
     12400 E. Imperial Hwy, Room 2001              Diamond Bar, CA 91765
     Norwalk, California 90650
Project Title:
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Attainment Redesignation Request and Maintenance Plan
Project Location:
South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) area of jurisdiction consisting of the four-
county South Coast Air Basin (Orange County and the non-desert portions of Los Angeles, Riverside
and San Bernardino counties), and the Riverside County portions of the Salton Sea Air Basin and the
Mojave Desert Air Basin.
Description of Nature, Purpose, and Beneficiaries of Project:
Staff is requesting a redesignation to attainment for carbon monoxide (CO) and submitting a CO
maintenance plan which will include the 2002 baseline CO attainment inventory and the 2003 AQMP
modeling that demonstrates continued future CO attainment. The monitoring networks meets the
requirements for verification of CO attainment status and the on-road motor vehicles CO emission
budget has been established for conformity. CARB is providing contingency emission reductions
through statewide regulations to safeguard continued attainment demonstration.
Public Agency Approving Project:                     Agency Carrying Out Project:
South Coast Air Quality Management District          South Coast Air Quality Management District
Exempt Status:
General Concepts [CEQA Guidelines §15002 (k)(1)]; and
General Rule Exemption [CEQA Guidelines §15061 (b)(3)];
Reasons why project is exempt:
The SCAQMD has reviewed the proposed project pursuant to state CEQA Guidelines §15002(k)(1).
Because the CO Attainment Redesignation Request is an administrative process and the CO
Maintenance Plan would impose no additional requirements than currently required by the 2003 AQMP,
it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the proposed project in question has the
potential to have a significant adverse effect on the environment beyond what was evaluated in the 2003
AQMP Final EIR. Further, CARB’s CO emission estimates continue CO emission reductions through
2015. Thus, the proposed project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15061(b)(3) -
Review for Exemption.
