Document Description
NOTE: Supplement/Subsequent EIR The City of Brentwood Community Development Department proposes to restructure Chapter 17.730 of the City of Brentwood Municipal Code to more fully and effectively implement the AEP. The proposed amendments to the Municipal Code would allow for more flexibility in the use of mitigation funds collected under the AEP and would fund a wider variety of enterprise programs, with the ultimate goal increasing the viability of commercial agriculture around Brentwood. Under the existing program, mitigation funds are primarily used to purchase conservation easements. However, the City believes that the use of mitigation funds primarily to purchase conservation easements will ultimately be ineffective at preserving the critical mass of farmland around Brentwood that is necessary to sustain farming in the area over the long-term. The City believes that a minimum amount of farmland acreage is required in the area in order to sustain the complex mix of business that support farming in the area, and to allow Brentwood's surroundings to remain a viable agricultural area.
