General Plan: Agricultural. Zoning: AE-40 ac (Agricultural Exclusive, 40 acre min)
Document Description
The applicant requests a 20-year Conditional Use Permit for a proposed dog kennel facility on a portion of an approximately 21-acre parcel in the Agricultural Exclusive Zone. The proposed facility would be used for breeding, raising, and training of golden retrievers and vizsla dog breeds. A maximum of 210 dogs would be allowed. On-site dog sales would be prohibited. There would be eight employees maximum daily, and five families maximum a day would visit Wednesday through Saturday. The proposed project includes new development of seven kennel buildings, an administration building, private road and driveway, parking spaces, landscaping, stormwater detention basins, and supporting infrastructure. The buildings would be enclosed by a chain link fence for security, and there would be a locked gate at the driveway entrance. Grading would result in 10,800 cubic yards (CY) of cut and 10,800 CY of fill (balanced on site). The proposed project involves the removal of four Heritage size trees. A portion of the existing, on-site avocado orchard would be removed for the proposed project. The remaining on-site orchard trees not within the proposed development area would remain as part of the ongoing orchard operation. The proposed kennel facility would be served by County Waterworks District 1. Dog kennel liquid waste and grooming wastewater would be disposed of through a proposed onsite pretreatment system and infiltration basin. The proposed project includes the installation of a new onsite wastewater treatment system (OWTS) for the proposed administration building. Existing OWTSs would continue to be used for existing structures.
