Document Description
Request to permit a 4,320 square-foot modular office and outdoor materials storage site on an 8.38± acre parcel, in the General Agriculture (A-2-40) zoning district for the Aemetis Biogas facility located on Assessor Parcel Number (APN) 045-026-039. The office is for coordination of multiple off-site dairy digester and pipeline construction projects in Stanislaus County. The digesters are accessory to the permitted dairies on each off-site location. As the modular office will be used in relation to bona fide agricultural establishments at off-site locations, a Tier Two Use Permit for an Agricultural Service Establishment is required. The request will also include staging of supplies and equipment for each project. The trailer is intended to be used for a period of no more than 24 months. Access to the site is via County-maintained Faith Home Road. Proposed hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The applicant anticipates 15 employees on a single maximum shift. The project site will include a total of 15 graveled parking spaces, located on the east and west sides of the modular office. The eastern portion of the property will be used to temporarily store liner material for the dairy digesters. Storm drainage will be handled via overland drainage. The site is served by a private well and septic system. The balance of the parcel has been developed with a storage shed used for supplies and tools and a previously approved communication facility.
