Agromin-Limoneira Commercial Organics Processing Operation
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
General Plan: Agricultural/ Zoning: Agricultural Exclusive Zone
Document Description
The proposed project includes a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) and Non-Coastal Zoning Ordinance (NCZO) Text Amendment to permit the expansion of an existing 15-acre agricultural organics processing facility to a new 70-acre commercial organics processing operation that would process food and green material delivered to the site and package-for-sale mulch, compost, and wood chip materials. The proposed project would utilize a combination of open windrows, Covered Aerated Static Piles (CASPs), and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) systems to process organic materials into saleable compost and mulch products. The NCZO Text Amendment proposes to amend Section 8107-36.4.1(a) Standards Relating To Organics Processing Operations (Includes Biosolids, Composting, Vermicomposting, And Chipping And Grinding). The project site will be accessed from the intersection of Telegraph Road and Olive Road (both public rights-of-ways) south to Edwards Ranch Road (a private road) and crossing at the Southern Pacific Railroad right-of- way. Options for off-site secondary access for public safety purposes include utilization of existing private roads to Todd Road (includes a railroad crossing over Todd Barranca) or to Darling Road (includes a railroad crossings over Ellsworth Barranca). See NOC for full project description.
