EIR - Draft EIR
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
General Plan Amendment, zone change, and specific plan amendment for the Santa Maria Public Airport District. When compared with the adopted Santa Maria Research Park Specific Plan, the Santa Maria Airport Business Park Specific Plan excludes 218 acres of Airport Service I (AS-I) and 88 acres of Airport Service II (AS-II) zoned land located within the security fencing of the airport. Additionally, 49 acres of property located west of Blosser Road has been removed from the project area. The specific plan calls for light industrial, research, manufacturing, and commercial land uses around an 18-hole golf course. Additional uses will include retail opportunities and government facilities. Large areas of open space are being reserved for recreational or conservation uses, and a portion of the project area is set aside as a biological preserve.
