NOTE: Reference SCH#1998121070 / Review Per Lead
The project site consists of a portion of two legal parcels of record and encompasses ~190 acres. The site is zoned A (Exclusive Agriculture) and is designated 8.1 (Intensive Agriculture, 20 acre minimum) by the Kern County General Plan. The project is located on the south side of East Bear Mountain Boulevard (SR 223), approximately 1/2 mile west of Wheeler Ridge Road. The site is currently developed with a greenwaste collection and composting facility that has been operated by Community Recycling and Resource Recovery, Inc. since 1993. Existing development consists of 4 composting areas, processed compost stockpile areas, feedstock screening areas, a truck/tire pressure-washing area, and associated office space. The applicant intends to develop a whoelsale plant nursery (allowed "by right") at the southeast corner of the site in the future. The current site configuration and layout has been approved by a series of modifications to the original conditional use permit, which was initially approved in 1993. Surrounding land uses include the Lamont Public Utility District (LPUD) wastewater treatment facility to the north and east, a diary to the west, and irrigated row crops to the south. The Arvin Landfill is directly across Wheeler Ridge Road to the southeast. The closest residence is at the dairy, which is located ~1/4 of a mile west. The next closest residences are located ~1 mile south, at the ski lakes south of Millux Road.
