NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project requests the following entitlements from the County of Sacramento: 1. A Tentative Parcel Map to divide a 56-acre property into two parcels in the Agricultural 80 (AG-80) zoning district. 2. A Special Development Permit to allow the proposed project to deviate from the following development standards: • Minimum Lot Area and Width (Section 5.3.1.A, Table 5.4): For a property in the AG-80 zone, the minimum lot area is 80 gross acres and minimum lot width is 1,000 feet. Parcel 1 is proposed to be 2.85 gross acres and Parcel 2 is proposed to be 53.41 acres. The proposed lot width for Parcel 1 is 400 feet, and for Parcel 2 is 528.46 feet. 3. A Design Review to determine substantial compliance with the Sacramento County Countywide Design Guidelines (Design Guidelines). The owner proposes to separate the existing 1,032 square foot single-family residence from the active farm to deed the residence to the farmworker. The active farm will continue to be used for agricultural purposes and the owner will convey development rights of approximately 53.41± acres to Sacramento County to prohibit future development. Currently, the property is within an active Williamson Act contract (70-AP-045) and a new contract will be established to account for the parcel split. Proposed Parcel 1 (2.85± acres) is currently developed with a single family residence, garage and several sheds. Proposed Parcel 2 (53.41± acres) contains the active agricultural farm that will continue to remain in production.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
PRC Section 21084; CEQA Guidelines Sections 15300 -15333
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project consists of an existing facility and involves no expansion of existing or former use. With approval of the Tentative Parcel Map, the proposed project will convey development rights of approximately 53.41± acres to Sacramento County and this will prohibit any future development that is inconsistent with the agricultural activities already taking place on the site. The active agricultural farm will remain in production and the farmworker will reside in the existing single-family home already located on proposed Parcel 1. The project will not result in environmental impacts and is therefore exempt from the provisions of CEQA. Please see the attached initial study prepared for the proposed project for additional reasons why the project is exempt from CEQA.
