Present Land Use
All proposed uses to be allowed on Agricultural II (AG-II) zone, one proposed use to be allowed at winery tasting rooms on Agricultural I (AG-I) zone.
Document Description
The proposed project would amend the County's Land Use and Development Code and Coastal Zoning Ordinance to allow a variety of small-scale uses that would be incidental to and compatible with traditional agriculture uses on lands zoned AG-II in the rural unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County, including the coastal zone, but excluding Montecito and land under the jurisdiction of incorporated cities, the federal government, and the UC Santa Barbara. Uses include small-scale supplemental uses and rural recreational/agritourism uses. In addition, one of the uses, incidental food service, would also be considered for winery tasting rooms on lands zoned AG-I.
