Document Description
A request by Steve Olson of Kiler Canyon Vineyards LLC for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2019-00070) to allow for the construction of a winery facility that will include two buildings: Building A (one-story 1,966-square-foot tasting room building) that will include a 978-square-foot tasting room, 298-square-foot case storage room, wine pick up area, foyer, 3-restrooms, and 1,465-square-foot outdoor covered porch; Building B (two-story 6,608-square-foot wine production/barrel storage building) that will include a 2,451-square-foot barrel storage room, 2,659-square-foot tank room, office, break room, kitchen, 2-restrooms, and a mezzanine level with a lab and additional storage space. This building will include a 2,410-square-foot outdoor covered work area. Maximum annual case production of 10,000 cases. San Luis Obispo County Code Section 22.30.70.D.2.a. states that the principle access driveway to a winery with public tours, tasting rooms or special events is to be located on or within one mile of an arterial or collector road. The applicant is requesting a modification to Section 22.30.70.D.2.a to locate the winery with a tasting room 1.97 miles from the nearest collector road. Section 22.30.020.D allows a standard to be modified through a Conditional Use Permit if it can be proven to be unnecessary and the project meets all other development standards. This project does not include any special events. However, the project does include the participation in wine industry events as allowed by the Land Use Ordinance. The project will result in approximately 2.75 acres of site disturbance on a 53-acre parcel, including 7,369 cubic yards of cut and 7,488 cubic yards of fill. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category, located at 1535 Kiler Canyon Road, 1.97 miles west of the City Paso Robles. The project site is in the Salinas River Sub Area of the North County planning area.
