Received
Present Land Use
All uses to be allowed on Agricultural II (AG-II) zone, one use to be allowed at Winery Tasting Rooms on Agricultural I (AG-I) zone.
Document Description
The Agricultural Enterprise Ordinance proposes to allow a variety of uses that would be incidental to and compatible with traditional agriculture uses on land zoned AG-II. One of the uses (incidental food service) is also proposed to be allowed at wineries located on land zoned AG-I. The goal is to expand economic opportunities for farmers and improve the County’s overall agricultural land viability while maintaining the function and character of the County’s rural agricultural areas. The primary use of the land must continue to be agriculture (e.g., crop cultivation, ranching/grazing); however, this project would allow local farmers and ranchers to pursue incidental and compatible agricultural enterprises that support their existing agricultural operations. The project description, location, and potential environmental effects are included in the attached Environmental Scoping Document for the Agricultural Enterprise Ordinance Revised Project Description, or if not attached, it may be downloaded from the project webpage at: https://www.countyofsb.org/728/Agricultural-Enterprise-Ordinance
