The proposed project would include the annexation of 18 parcels, approximately 10,485 acres, to MID jurisdiction. The District currently owns and operates the subject property and the annexation would not include changes in land use or operations. Currently, the project site is used for cattle grazing and the proposed project would maintain the existing land use and zoning designations. No upgrades or ground disturbance would be required as part of the annexation and the District would continue to engage in any ongoing maintenance, operations, and capital improvements, as applicable. Although the District previously received certain approvals and performed environmental review associated with water banking uses within the project site, the District is not presently performing water banking within Madera Ranch. This project does not relate to, and is not intended to facilitate or permit, any water banking activities on the project site. Any future water banking activities are independent of and not contingent upon, the annexation of the project site into the District. Therefore, for purposes of the environmental analysis, the project only includes the annexation of the subject parcels to the District.
