Present Land Use
The project site is currently zoned for light manufacturing, airport services, commercial uses and open space. Several overlay/combining districts, including planned development, clear zone and airport approach apply to portions of the site. Current land uses within the project site include airport operational areas, airport service businesses, cultivated agriculture, animal grazing lands, open space, and a 94-unit mobile home park. A biologically rich area of dune chaparral, riparian vegetation, and vernal pooling will be preserved. Major stands of eucalyptus trees will also be preserved. Runway approach and safety areas will continue to be respected to sustain the primary objective of maintaining viable airport operations. An existing non-conforming mobile home park is centrally located on a 10-acre site within the project area.

Document Description
The Santa Maria Airport Business Park includes light industrial and research facilities that will be developed surrounding public recreational open space intended for an 18-hole golf course set in the southwestern and central portions of the project area. A large portion of the project area (105+ acres) is set aside as a biological preserve for the long-term protection of the California Tiger Salamander. The providing plant and animal habitat, this open space corridor provides a buffer between the residential areas to the south and the research and light industrial sites within the project area and the Airport located further to the north. A high-density housing development will be made available for relocation of the residents of the mobile home park along the southern boundary of the plan.
