Present Land Use
Single-family dwelling, detached residential structure / Zoning: General Agriculture (A-2-40) / General Plan Designation: Agriculture
Document Description
Request to establish a mosque on a 2.71± acre parcel in the General Agriculture (A-2-40) zoning district. The project proposes to convert an existing single-story, 13-foot-tall, 720 square-foot detached garage into a mosque to be used as a prayer hall for Central Valley Crescent (CVC). While the facility has previously been in operation at this site without permits, a Use Permit is required to permit the proposed mosque. No new exterior construction is proposed; however, both a change of occupancy for the change in use of the structure and a building permit for a tenant improvement to bring the existing garage’s restroom into compliance with ADA standards will be required. The applicant proposes to install two graveled parking lots providing 35 parking spaces and one paved ADA parking space, frontage landscaping, and a driveway approach providing access to County-maintained Tully Road. The balance of the site is proposed to be planted in orchard. The project site is also developed with an existing 1,560 square-foot single-family dwelling, which is proposed to be used as on-site housing for CVC’s Imam and family. Both the proposed mosque and existing residence site will utilize the existing private well for domestic water and septic system for wastewater service. The site is not currently irrigated but proposes to be served by MID for irrigation of the proposed orchard trees. Parking lot lighting consisting of 15-foot-tall, pole-mounted solar LED parking lights are proposed within the parking areas.
