Document Description
This is a request to create two parcels, 10± and a 20± acres in size, from a 30± acre parcel that lies in both Stanislaus and Merced County, with 15-acres located in each jurisdiction. The 15.31± acre portion within Stanislaus County is designated General Agriculture (A-2-10) and enrolled in Williamson Act Contract No. 2020-0006. The project site is currently improved with a single-family dwelling, a private well, a private septic system, and four agricultural and residential accessory structures with the balance of the project site planted in alfalfa. If approved, the ten-acre proposed Parcel 1 will contain all existing structures, well, and septic system, and be located entirely within Stanislaus County; The 15-acre proposed Parcel 2 will be improved with alfalfa, and be split across the County border, with 5± acres within Stanislaus County, and 10± acres within Merced County. Due to requirements within the County’s Williamson Act Uniform Rules, a Williamson Act Contract must conform to the boundaries of a parcel when subject to a parcel map and be not less than ten-acres in size. A cancellation of the five-acre portion of Proposed Parcel 2 is required. The portion of the parcel located within Merced County is not enrolled within a Williamson Act Contract. The project site irrigates with water from Turlock Irrigation District. Proposed Parcel 1 will not have direct frontage onto a County-maintained roadway if approved; instead, the parcel proposes to take access to County-maintained Golf Road via an existing 20-foot-wide road easement (referenced in County Record No. Doc-2018-0071313), located at the northeast edge of the project site. Consequently, an Exception to Stanislaus County Subdivision Ordinance Section 20.52.170 – Lots – Access is required due to Proposed Parcel 1 being under 20 acres in size and not fronting on a County-maintained roadway. The portion of Proposed Parcel 2 within Merced County will have frontage off County-maintained Clausen Road. A non-renewal has been filed for the entire 15.31± acre portion of the Williamson Act Contract.
