Document Description
The objective in preparing of the Lemon Cove Community Plan is to develop a plan which can accurately reflect the needs and priorities of the unincorporated community of Lemon Cove. The Land Use and Circulation portions of this Plan provide the mechanism to minimize or avoid the potential adverse impacts of urban growth. The development of an orderly, harmonious land use pattern and appropriate implementation measures are designed to reduce potential conflict between neighboring uses across Tulare County's 2030 planning horizon, consistent with the Tulare County 2030 General Plan Update. The Plan is needed to increase the availability of infrastructure funding, such as drinking water system improvements (wells, water distribution piping, storage tanks, etc.), wastewater system improvements (such as treatment, piping, lift stations, etc.), and public works/safety improvements (such as curbs, gutters, sidewalks, etc.), and to stimulate economic development within the community. The Community Plan for General Plan Amendment No. GPA 17-007, which is inclusive of the Lemon Cove Community Plan, amendments to Section 18.9 (PZC 19-016), Section 16 (PZC 19-017), and the Zoning District Map (PZC 17-007) of Ordinance No. 352, the Zoning Ordinance for the Community of Lemon Cove, is required to achieve consistency with the Tulare County General Plan 2030 Update (August 2012). The General Plan Amendment is required-i) for the Community Plan for Lemon Cove; ii) to approve a Zoning Ordinance amendment to add Lemon Cove to the Mixed Use Overlay zoning district Section 18.9; iii) to approve an amendment to Section 16 of the Zoning Code to allow additional by-right uses; and iv) to approve the Zoning District Map, within the Lemon Cove Urban Development Boundary, under CEQA Sections 15070 through 15073 of the CEQA Guidelines.
