Document Title
1973 State Route 65 Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The project site consists of a 1.8-acre portion of a 3.84-acre parcel located at 1973 State Route (SR) 65 in the City of Wheatland, California, and is identified by Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APNs) 015-260-004-000 and 015-273-001-000. It should be noted that although the project site is identified by two APNs, the project site consists of one parcel. The project site is currently undeveloped and contains scattered trees throughout the property. The project site is generally bound by Walker Telecomm to the north, Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks to the north and east, the remainder of the parcel to the south, and SR 65 to the west. The project site is located outside of the Wheatland city limits; however, the site is included in the Wheatland Sphere of Influence (SOI) and the Wheatland General Plan. The City of Wheatland General Plan designates the project site as Medium Density Residential (MDR). Because the project site is not within the City of Wheatland, the site does not have a City zoning designation. The Yuba County General Plan designates the site as Natural Resources and the site is zoned Agriculture (AE-40) by the County.
Document Description
The proposed project consists of the annexation of the project site into the City of Wheatland. Annexation is ultimately subject to approval by Yuba Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo). The proposed project would require approval to amend the General Plan land use designation of the project site from MDR to Commercial, and Pre-Zone the project site with a City zoning designation of Heavy Commercial (C-3). The proposed project would not include any development at this time. Any future development on the project site would be subject to subsequent environmental review and approval by the City.
