Document Description
Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch (Farmstead Restaurant) at 738 Main Street: is seeking a use permit amendment and design review approval to expand and modify restaurant activities, to both permit some activities which are currently occurring on-site as well as to allow additional proposed activities as detailed below. As proposed, the existing farmer’s market building would be reconfigured to include a butchery and retail meat sales. Existing butchery operations would be moved from the restaurant to the reconfigured space and the farmer’s market would offer for sale, in addition to its current products, fresh meat and charcuterie. The existing baking operation would be moved from the restaurant to the existing commercial kitchen in the Logan-Ives House. Expansion of storage space for the current restaurant in two existing buildings is also proposed. Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch Lodging (Lodging Project) at 1000 Mills Lane: A 65 room, single-story hotel project is proposed in 14 new buildings on approximately 6.1 acres of the 10-acre site. The 10 guest lodging buildings are configured with either 6 or 7 guest rooms per building. The remaining approximately 3.9 acres of the property is zoned for agricultural use and is proposed to be operated as an organically-certified fruit and vegetable farm supplying restaurants and the farmer’s markets. Throughout the lodging portion of the property, farming would continue with an edible landscape of herbs, fruit and citrus trees, and vegetables planted along the pathways. This project requires numerous entitlements including a use permit, design review, variance, lot merger, lot line adjustment, and a development agreement.
