Document Description
The proposed project is the reconsideration of new applications for the Grapevine Specific and Community Plan (Grapevine- 2019) for consideration and potential approval by Kern County. The Grapevine planning area encompasses approximately 8,010 acres in southwestern Kern County, California and would include up to 12,000 residences (single-family and multifamily units), an additional 2,000 units that may be permitted if maximum commercial/industrial square footage is reduced as specified in the Specific and Special Plan, up to 5,100,000 square feet of commercial/industrial development, 157 acres for schools, 96 acres to 112 acres for parks, and other public facilities, including fire stations, a sheriffs substation, transit facilities/park- and-rides, and water and wastewater treatment facilities. Approximately 3,367 acres (about 42 percent of the planning area) would be designated as exclusive agriculture, with grazing and open space as the predominant land uses. Approximately 83 acres of additional infrastructure improvements would occur outside of the designated Specific Plan development area, and would include roadway improvements, an agricultural haul road, and the potential relocation of an existing California Vehicle Enforcement Facility located along I-5 to the immediate east of the project site. Note: See NOP for full descriptions
