Request to subdivide an existing 80± acre parcel into two parcels of 40± acres each, in the General Agriculture (A-2-40) zoning district. The existing parcel is currently improved with a single-family dwelling with a private septic system, a pool, and an equipment shed, which will be located on Parcel 1. The remaining balance of Proposed Parcel 1 will be replanted with almonds. Proposed Parcel 2 has no structures and is planted in almonds.
The parcel map request proposes a flag lot design for both resulting parcels. Proposed Parcel 2 will include a 43.5-foot-wide by 1,310-foot-long driveway, which will allow access to County-maintained Texas Road. Proposed Parcel 1 will include a 60-foot wide by 1,327-foot-long strip along the southern border of Proposed Parcel 2, to encompass an existing irrigation pump, pipeline, and accompanying equipment. This strip will include an irrigation easement for the benefit of Proposed Parcel 2. An irrigation pipeline runs along the southern portion of the proposed Parcel 1 and Proposed Parcel 2 has two irrigation pipelines running north to south. Both parcels will have road frontage on County-maintained Texas Road. The flag lot configuration will require a design standard Exception under Section 20.52.160 – Width to Depth Ratio of the County’s Subdivision Ordinance.
Although, no construction is proposed per Zoning Ordinance Section 21.20.020, one single-family dwelling, one accessory dwelling unit, and one junior accessory dwelling unit will be permitted per parcel. The project site is enrolled in a Williamson Act Contract and both the parcels will remain enrolled if approved.
