Request to utilize a 4,000 square-foot suite, within an existing 29,040 square-foot warehouse building, for the slaughter of chickens, lambs, and goats, on a 1.07-acre parcel in the Industrial (M) zoning district. The proposed hours of operation are seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with three employees on a maximum shift. Outside of normal business hours, up to two employees may be on-site for cleaning. Additionally, the applicant proposes a maximum of one daily truck trip, and up to three customers on-site at one time. The project site has three dedicated parking spaces outside, and three parking spaces inside the facility for employees and trucks, with one vehicle expected to be parked inside the facility on a daily basis. Live animals will be delivered between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., approximately twice a week by truck and be kept within cages inside the building. The trucks will park inside the facility out of public view before being unloaded. Up to two goats, two lambs, and 20 live chickens are expected on-site at any one time. An estimated three chickens are expected to be slaughtered per day (excluding Fridays), not exceeding 1,000 per year. Approximately two to three goats and/or lambs may be slaughtered per week, not exceeding 130 per year. The slaughter of the animals will occur as needed depending on customer orders. Animals are anticipated to be on-site for 24 hours prior to slaughter. After the animals are slaughtered, they will be butchered into retail cuts, packaged for sale, then stored in the deli case until they are picked up by the customer. The animal waste (feathers, blood, organs, hides) will be frozen and held in a large chest freezer, and subsequently picked up and used to make bone meal and other related products. Rinse water used during production will be filtered and passed through a grease interceptor before draining into the sewer system. Interior tenant improvements will separate the existing suite into areas for animal holding, slaughter, cleaning and packaging, and sales. Equipment utilized during the slaughtering and packaging process will consist of hand tools, knives, saws, a slicer, defeathering machine, and pressure washer for cleaning and sanitization. Exhaust fans will be utilized to limit odor. Proposed signage will consist of one sign affixed to the building. The project site is served by the City of Modesto for water and sewer services and has access to County-maintained Mitchell Road via a 30-foot-wide access easement located on the adjacent parcel to the south.
