Document Description
Woodyard, LLC (the Applicant) has applied for a Minor Use Permit to construct a cold storage facility on a 14.89-acre parcel in Yolo County, CA (Yolo County APN 027-270-046). The parcel (or Project site) is zoned Agricultural Intensive (A-N) and is designated Agriculture (AG) in the 2030 Countywide General Plan. The anticipated use of the facility would be for cold and dry storage of palletized agricultural commodities that are sensitive to temperature to serve the region. Regional-serving agricultural operations that include more than 100,000 square feet of building area and/or generate 60 truck trips or more per day require the issuance of a Minor Use Permit, per Section 8-2.306(r) of the Yolo County Code. The "Project" includes the construction and operation of an approximately 224,000 square foot cold storage facility, which would include ample office space, loading docks along the eastern portion of the facility, automobile parking along the northern, western, and southern portions of the facility, and tractor trailer parking on the southern portion of the parcel. The approximately 224,000 square foot building would include office space, a utility room, and ambient, cooler, and freezer storage space. The Project would also include a fire pump house with water storage tank and a detention basin on the southern portion of the parcel. Hours of operation would be approximately 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and the Project would require approximately 20 employees.
