Present Land Use
The project site has been used for timber production. According to the Sonoma County General Plan and Sonoma County Zoning Ordinance the land use designation and zoning for the project site are both Resources and Rural Development (RDD).

Document Description
The proposed project includes the issuance of a Timberland Conversion permit in order to facilitate the development of a vineyard. The proposed project also includes a Timber Harvest Plan (THP). The timber harvest would remove all trees within the "conversion area." Timber harvesting and conversion operations would not occur within the standard Class II and Class III watercourse protection zones that are adjacent to the timberland conversion area. In addition, a reservoir, totaling 73 acre-feet, would be constructed to supply the new vineyard with water.
