Document Description
The proposed project, the Draft Revised Dairy Element of the Kings County General Plan (developed by the Kings County Planning Agency), presents a comprehensive set of goals, objectives, and policies to guide development, expansion, and operation of milk cow (bovine) dairies within the County. The Draft Revised Dairy Element and associated zoning ordinance amendments, hereafter collectively referred to as "the Element," is designed to accomplish two equally important major purposes. The first purpose is to ensure that the dairy industry of Kings County continues to grow and contribute to the economic health and safety and the environment. The second purpose is to ensure that the standards established in the Element protect public health and safety and the environment. The County has determined that the best way to accomplish these combined goals is to adopt a separate general plan element that establishes development and operational policies for the local dairy industry.
