Document Description
The Tulare County Board of Supervisors passed Resolution 2019-0884 on October 15, 2019, approving the General Plan Initiation No. GPI 19-004 to authorize a General Plan Amendment No. GPA 20-001 for the Kingsburg Area Community Plan, to update the Tulare County General Plan. The proposed Kingsburg Area Community Plan is identified within the City of Kingsburg sphere of influence and County of Tulare’s County Adopted City Urban Development Boundary (CACUDB) for Kingsburg located along the Tulare County/Fresno County line (that is, adjacent to and south of Kingsburg), generally north of Avenue 390, west of Road 20, and south of State Route 201. The Kingsburg Community Area Plan Update will become consistent with the approved Tulare County General Plan 2030 Update and includes the following primary goals and objectives: 1) Land Use and Environmental Planning - Promote development within the planning areas next to the Regional Highway 99 Corridor in order to implement the following General Plan goals: a) Update the affected Urban Development Boundary; b) Ensure the text and mapping of the Community Plan Land Use Designations and Zoning Reclassifications address various development matters, such as encouraging Agricultural Adaptive Reuse activities, recognizing Non-Conforming Use activities, and facilitating Ministerial Permit approvals; c) Encourage infill development within a County Adopted City Urban Development Boundary, thereby discouraging leapfrog development within Tulare County; d) Reduce development pressure on agriculturally-designated lands within the Valley Floor, thereby encouraging agricultural production; e) Reduce vehicle miles travelled throughout the County, thereby positively affecting air quality and greenhouse gas reduction; and f) Improve the circulation, transit and railroad transportation system within this community, including, but not limited to, laying the groundwork for the construction of key projects, such as Safe Routes to Schools, Complete Streets, and Bike Lanes/Pedestrian Paths. 2) Improvements for a “disadvantaged community” - It is expected that the community planning area will be improved for the following reasons: a) Faster project processing resulting from an updated community plan, increasing employment opportunities that are more likely to be provided by the private sector as proposed project developments and permits can be approved as expeditiously as possible; b) Housing grant awards are more likely to be awarded based on updated community plans that are consistent with the policies of the General Plan Update (December 2012) and the recently adopted Housing Element (December 2023); and c) Enhanced infrastructure grant awards, thereby providing access to funding to install or upgrade road, water, wastewater, and storm water facilities. 3) Strengthening Relationship with TCAG - An important benefit of this community plan process will be the opportunity for RMA to strengthen the County’s relationship with the Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG) in that this community plan will help to facilitate the funding and implementation of several key transportation programs such as Safe Routes to Schools, Complete Streets, Bike/Pedestrian Projects, and major state Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) project. By pursuing these transportation programs through a heightened collaborative process, the likelihood of getting actual projects in the ground will be realized faster than historically achieved. In doing so, this community, and others, can become safer and healthier by providing a more efficient transportation network.
