Document Description
Request to subdivide a 160± gross acre parcel into four parcels, each 40± acres in size, in the General Agriculture (A-2-40) zoning district. APN 016-009-041 is currently being assessed as a 3-acre Life Estate; however, it is just a portion of the existing legal parcel, which is 160± gross acres made up of two separate Assessor parcel numbers (APNs) 016-009-040 and APN 016-009-041. Proposed Parcel A is improved with an existing manufactured home, septic system, water tank, domestic well, and a previously approved 100-foot-tall monopole cell tower with accompanying equipment within a 1,156 square-foot leased area. Proposed Parcels B and D will remain planted in almond trees. Proposed Parcel C is improved with an existing single-family dwelling, detached garage, two agricultural shop buildings, a walnut orchard, septic system, domestic well, irrigation box, and irrigation well. If approved, all four parcels will maintain their right to independently irrigate. The current parcel is irrigated via a drip system with irrigated water from private on-site wells and the El Solyo Water District via a 45-foot-wide irrigation easement on the eastern property line of proposed Parcels A and B. Parcel A will have access to County-maintained Orchard Road via an existing driveway; Parcel B will front on County-maintained Center Road; Parcel C will have access to County-maintained River Road via an existing driveway and road frontage on Center Road; and Parcel D will front both County-maintained Orchard and River Roads.
