Revised Draft Dairy Element of the Kings County General Plan
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
The proposed project, the Revised Draft 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 Dairy Element ("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 of the County. The second purpose is to ensure that the standards established in the Draft Dairy 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. The Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) will evaluate the adequacy of the goals, objectives, and policies contained in the Draft Dairy Element in reducing or eliminating potential environmental impacts associated with implementation of the Dairy Element.
