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.
