PLU: Fallow land/ Z: A (Exclusive Agriculture) & M-3 (Heavy Industrial) GP: 7.2 (Service Industrial) & 8.4 (Resource - Mineral & Petroleum)

Document Description
a) Amend the Land Use, Open Space and Conservation Element of the Kern County General Plan from Map Code 8.4 (Mineral and Petroleum) to Map Code 7.2 (Service Industrial) on 33.5 acres or a more restrictive map code designation; (b) A Change in zone classification from M-3 (Heavy Industrial) to M-2, PD (Medium Industrial - Precise Development Combining) or a more restrictive district on 18.2 acres, from A (Exclusive Agriculture) to M-2 PD or a more restrictive district on 61.7 acres, and (c) Exclusion of approximately 95.2 acres from the boundaries of an Agricultural Preserve. The request is intended to facilitate future industrial expansion. The Map Code 7.2 designation is intended to provide for commercial or industrial activities which involve outdoor storage or uses of heavy equipment; such uses produce significant air or noise pollution and are visually obstructive. The purpose of the M-2 District is to designate areas for general manufacturing, processing, and assembly activities where such uses may not produce fumes, odor, dust, smoke, gas, or vibrations extending beyond zoning district boundaries. The purpose of the PD Combining District is to designate areas with unique site characteristics or environmental conditions or areas surrounded by sensitive land uses to ensure that development in such areas is compatible with such constraints. The purpose of the NR District is to designate lands that contain productive or potentially productive petroleum, mineral, or timber resources exploration, production and transportation, and to compatible uses. Water service and sewage disposal are proposed by the Superior Mutual Water Company and the North of the River Sanitary District, respectively. Access is proposed via Beech Avenue and Seventh Standard Road, which are designated as "Collector" and "Arterial" alignments, respectively by the Circulation Element of the Kern County General Plan
