The subject property is presently being utilized for residential purposes. The site is zoned AE - 20. The Rural Valley Lands Plan of the Tulare County General Plan indicates that the subject site is not located within any Urban Development or Urban Area Boundaries. The Environmental Resource Management Element designates the site for "Intensive Agriculture." The proposal is in compliance with the Tulare County General Plan and all applicable Elements.
The Special Use Permit would allow an agricultural service establishment (truck parking facility) on a 1-acre portion of a 3.3-acre site. The truck parking facility would be owned and operated by the occupant of the on-site residence. The trucks being parked at the site haul only agricultural products. A maximum of forty-eight spaces are proposed, with four of those spaces being identified as transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The trucks are owned and operated by individuals who would utilize the site for parking only. Typically, the owner/operator parks his personal vehicle on the site for the duration of the truck haul. The days and hours of operation would be 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year. No truck drivers remain at the site overnight. A noise study and Health Risk Assessment were conducted for the proposal.
