Document Description
The proposed Tulare Industrial Complex project is located in a southern portion of unincorporated Tulare County along State Route 99 (SR-99), immediately adjacent to the existing City of Tulare corporate limits. The proposed project consists of approximately 272.44 acres of active agricultural land and is generally bounded by Hosfield Road to the north, SR-99 to the west, the Road 192 alignment to the south, and Laspina Street to the east. The proposed project includes a pre-zoning of the enter 272.44 acre site to M-1 (Light Industrial), consistent with the Tulare 2030 General Plan Update. The proposed project also includes a Sphere of Influence (SOI) amendment to the Tulare 2030 General Plan and annexation into the City. (Note: The 2030 General Plan is currently in litigation; therefore, this environmental document will assume that a General Plan Amendment to Light Industrial (LI), as well as a SOI amendment, will be needed). The Tulare 2030 General Plan Update Land Use Diagram included this area with the sphere boundary. The SOI limits identified under the City of Tulare 1993 General Plan does not include the proposed project site and is therefore identified as A (Agricultural) under the County's land use designation and AE-40 (Exclusive Agriculture, 40 acre minimum), per the County's currently zoning for the site.
