Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
2 agricultural buildings & undeveloped / A (Exclusive Agriculture) / 8.3 (Extensive Agriculture (Min. 20-acre Parcel Size))
Document Description
(a) An amendment to the Kern County General Plan from 8.3 (Extensive Agriculture - Minimum 20 Acre Parcel Size) to 7.1 (Light Industrial); (b) a zone change from A (Exclusive Agriculture) to M-1 PD (Light Industrial - Precise Development Combining) on 40 acres; (c) A precise development plan for the conversion of two existing agricultural buildings into: (1) a heavy/construction equipment sales/shop/warehouse building, and (2) a contractor's office/shop/warehouse building with associated storage yards; and (d) the exclusion of 40 acres from the boundaries of Agricultural Preserve No. 10. The project site is a 40-acre portion of an 80-acre parcel. Intent is to subdivide the 40-acre portion into 6 parcels, ranging in size from 4.8 acres to 10 acres, and industrially develop them. With the exception of the land uses described above however, no other development is currently being proposed. The M-1 District is limited to activities conducted within a building that does not emit fumes, odor, dust, smoke, or gas beyond the confines of the building within which the activities occur or produce significant levels of noise or vibration. More information on uses allowed in the M-1 District can be found at: www.co.kern.ca.us/planning/pdfs/zo/1936.pdf. The purpose of the PD Combining District is to identify areas with unique site characteristics or environment conditions or areas surrounded by sensitive land uses to ensure development in such areas is compatible with such constraints. Development in the PD Combining District is discretionary and, therefore, subject to further environmental review. No use can be established or developed in the PD Combining District until an application for development has been deemed complete and an environmental document, if required, has been completed so the request can be considered at a regularly scheduled public hearing. As proposed, the method of water supply for future development would be by either individual wells or approved community system while sewage disposal would be via septic tank. Access would be by an existing permitted drive approach on Taft Highway which is designated as an "arterial/commercial hazardous waste shipping" alignment by the Circulation Element of the Kern County General Plan.
