Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061 (b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of subdividing the existing approximately 133.5-acre parcel into two legal parcels of 78.9 and 54.6 acres. Over 100 acres of the 133.5-acre parcel is currently used for agricultural operations, including vineyards and horse pasture. The remainder of the project site is developed with appropriately permitted temporary events and associated storage barns, restroom facility, two (2) single-family residences operating as vacation rentals, a farm support quarter, accessory dwelling unit, equestrian barn and arena, and agricultural accessory structures. The subdivision does not negatively impact existing or future agricultural operations on the property and does not propose any disturbance or development as a part of this subdivision process. Any access improvements, grading, or construction will require additional permits and applicable environmental review. As proposed, the subdivision will not cause any physical disturbance to the property and will not impact any biological or cultural resources. Additionally, the subdivision, as proposed, will not result in any potential impacts to areas such as aesthetics, geology and soils, water, traffic, or cumulative impacts since land development is not proposed. The proposed parcel configuration is designed to consolidate, split, and reclassify existing residential development across both proposed parcels. The project, as conditioned, will comply with the Land Use Ordinance. As required by the conditions of approval, any future development will potentially require additional environmental review.
