MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
General Plan description: Agriculture, Watershed & Open Space (AWOS), Public-Institutional and Urban Residential
Zoning: Agricultural Watershed (AW), Airport Compatibility Combination (AC), Airport (AV), Affordable Housing Combination (AH), and Planned Development (PD)
The proposed project involves the clearing of existing hay fields and associated vegetation, earthmoving, and installation and maintenance of erosion control measures associated with the development of approximately 42.2 gross acres of vineyard (i.e., development area or proposed clearing limits) with approximately 35.9 net planted acres, within three vineyard blocks located on an approximately 485.2-acre property. Pacific Union College owns nearly 1600 acres, including approximately 200 acres planted with oats, annual rye, and other forbs on an annual basis since the 1970s. The proposed project would be developed entirely on land that has been farmed in this manner since before the enactment of the Napa County Conservation Regulations in 1991.
