Description
Request to establish an almond and walnut storage facility on a 9.35± acre parcel in the A-2-40 (General Agriculture) zoning district. The proposed operation will utilize three existing barn structures totaling 61 ,560 square feet for sizing , shelling, sorting , bulk packaging, and storage of almonds, walnuts , cashews, pistachios and macadamias from local growers, hullers and shellers. A 2,000 square-foot cement pad is proposed to be used for portable storage, and two structures totaling 1,600 square feet for an office and breakroom. The project site is improved with the aforementioned structures, as well as a manufactured home, a personal shop, garage, and pasture. A section of one of the three barns contains 20 horse stalls and a tack room as the site has historically been used for horse training and boarding without an approved Use Permit. The property owner currently utilizes four stalls for his personal horses. If approved, a condition of approval requiring reduction of the number of stalls and removal of any training equipment will be added to the project. The facility will employ up to seven employees and operate year-round from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. A maximum of one truck trip per day during business hours is proposed for five total per week for a total of approximately 20 per month. The site is served by private domestic well and septic system with leach field and takes access off County-maintained Faith Home Road via two driveways. Stormwater runoff is handled by an existing drainage basin located on the project site. The project site is enrolled in an active Williamson Act contract; however, a non-renewal has been filed and the project will remain under contract for a period of ten years until December 31, 2028.
