Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
Use Permit Modification to approved winery use permit File No. PLP02-0085 to allow an increase in annual wine production capacity from 250,000 cases to 2.5 million cases; the construction of a new 22,000 square foot wine production building and associated parking and storm water management improvements; an increase in full-time employees from 1 O to 15, reduction in seasonal employees from 14 to 5, and an increase in business visitors from 3 to 4 persons daily. The proposed modification would eliminate previously approved public tasting and hospitality uses. Existing hours of operation would remain unchanged, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday - Friday off harvest and 6:00 am to 10:00 pm seven days a week during harvest season. The original project (File No. PLP02-0085) was approved in April 2007 for 1) a Zone Change to remove the Mineral Resource combining district from a portion of the former 193-acre site that was subject to Lot Line Adjustment LLA06-0004; and 2) a phased Use Permit for a new winery and public tasting with annual production capacity of 250,000 cases on the resulting 20-acre parcel. A Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) was prepared and posted for the original project in accordance with CEQA. The Planning Commission held a public hearing on March 1, 2007 and recommended to the Board of Supervisors approval of the proposed project. The Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on April 24, 2007 and adopted the MND and approved the project subject to conditions of approval set forth in Board Resolution No. 07-0330.
