Document Description
The project is a proposed zoning text amendment that would allow limited agritourism incidental to active agricultural operations on parcels 10 acres and larger that are zoned AG-1, AG-2, and/or R-R. Agritourism uses would include but not be limited to farm tours, field days, farm sponsored hospitality dinners, educational classes, U-Pick produce sales, agricultural farmstays, and agritourism camping. Further, in an effort to minimize, to the greatest extent practicable, off-site impacts associated with agritourism-related activities, the zoning text amendment would differentiate between generally permissable, less intensive "level I Agritourism" and more intensive "level II Agritourism" and would subject "Level II Agritourism" to Agritourism Performance Standards and approval of either an administrative use permit or conditional use permit.
