Request to operate an agricultural equipment fabrication and repair business in an existing 2,400± square-foot shop on an 8.71± acre parcel, in the General Agriculture (A-2-40) zoning district. The fabrication of parts and repairs conducted on the project site will be for agricultural equipment such as tractors, choppers, harvesters, scrapers, shakers, bailers, disc, harrows, nut trailers and other implements used for farming and harvesting. The applicant will continue to serve agricultural customers in the Central Valley, including Stanislaus, Merced, and San Joaquin counties. As part of this request, the applicant proposes to develop nine parking stalls for employee and customer parking, install a six-foot-tall chain-link fencing and two vehicle gates at the front of the property. The applicant will also plant vines and a hedge around the existing shop area, proposed parking stalls and along the proposed fence at the front of the project site. The proposed hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and occasionally on weekends, from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., under special circumstances. The applicant anticipates six employees on a single shift, and a maximum of two customers on-site per day. One truck trip per day for deliveries is anticipated. The site is currently improved with a 3,328± square-foot single-family dwelling, a 2,400± square-foot shop consisting of a restroom, office, and storage area, 20,873± square-feet of asphalt around the shop building and a four-foot-tall, barbed wire fence that runs along the perimeter of the project site. The balance of the property is planted in alfalfa and receives irrigation water from the Turlock Irrigation District. The project site has access to South Vincent Road and is served by private well and septic system.
