Present Land Use
A pumpkin farm is currently located on-site. The site currently has a Yuba County zoning designation of Agricultural Exclusive, 40-Acre Minimum. One portion of the site has a Yuba County land use designation of Valley Agriculture and one portion has a City of Wheatland land use designation of Park.

Document Description
The proposed project is located at 1415 Pumpkin Lane in the City of Wheatland. The project site is identified by Assessor's Parcel Number 015-180-109. Bishop's Pumpkin Farm occupies approximately 40 acres and the primary pumpkin sales and related operations occur from mid-September through October 31st. The project applicant has requested that the City of Wheatland annex the pumpkin farm property and has submitted an application requesting Council approval of an annexation resolution and pre-zoning of the site to Agriculture Exclusive - Planned Development (AE-PD) zone. The existing General Plan designation of the site is Park and the proposed pre-zoning and existing use of the site is consistent with the General Plan designation. The applicant is not seeking to change the existing use of the site. The proposed annexation will allow the Bishop's Pumpkin Farm to connect to the City's water and wastewater system. In addition, a PD zone will be created consistent with the recent Planned Development Ordinance adopted by the City Council. The purpose of the PD will be to outline the existing uses that are permitted and to define the process necessary for any future expansions or modifications to the site operations. If the City Council approves the annexation request, an application will be submitted to the Yuba County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) for annexation.
