Document Description
The proposed revision to the Butte County Code would allow the re-use of certain agricultural properties and facilities for an expanded set of commercial and industrial uses directly supporting local agriculture. Re-use would be subject to administrative or, in some cases, use permit review. The ordinance includes development and performance standards limiting potential impacts, as well as required findings for use permit approval. These standards will be in addition to other applicable zoning standards. All uses currently allowed on subject parcels would continue to be permitted. The proposed ordinance would apply only to sites listed on an Agricultural Re-Use Site Inventory. The draft Site Inventory consists of 15 sites which have been developed with facilities, paved or surfaced; or which are otherwise unsuitable for productive agriculture.
