 7.   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT RESOURCE AGENCY/PLANNING/ZONING TEXT AMENDMENT WINERY ORDINANCE/(PZTA-20050609)/NEGATIVE DECLARATION – Public hearing to consider an amendment to Chapter 17 of the Placer County Code for the creation of a winery specific ordinance. The Winery Ordinance creates a new section 17.56.330 (Wineries) within Article 17.56 (Specific Use Requirements) of the Placer County Zoning Ordinance. Currently, wineries fall under the definition of “agricultural processing” and require a Minor Use Permit.  The proposed Winery Ordinance includes definitions, permit requirements, and standards related to access, parking, water, waste disposal, tasting rooms and promotional events.  As proposed, the Winery Ordinance would simplify the permit process by allowing many small wineries with Zoning Clearance or the processing of an Administrative Review Permit depending on the zoning district, rather than a Minor Use Permit as currently required.  As proposed, the Winery Ordinance may affect existing wineries with approved Minor Use Permits.  Depending upon the zone district, an approved Minor Use Permit may be rendered moot because it would no longer be required in that zone district.  Previously approved Minor Use Permits would continue to apply for wineries located in districts where Administrative Use Permits will be required.  New proposed uses will be subject to compliance with the provisions of the Winery Ordinance.  For example, if a winery proposes a new type of use, like adding wine tasting to the winery facility, either a building permit (for a new structure) or a change of occupancy permit (for an existing building not approved for public use) would be required.  Such building/change of occupancy permit would be subject to Zoning Clearance for compliance with the Winery Ordinance and other County Codes, as well as review by the local serving fire district to insure compliance with Fire Safe Standards.

 

Associated amendments to implement the Winery Ordinance are proposed to Article 17.04 (Definitions), Section 17.06.050 (Land Use Permits and Permit Tables), Section 17.08.010 (Agricultural Exclusive), Section 17.10.010 (Farm), Section 17.12.010 (Forestry), Section 17.16.010 (Timberland Production), Section 17.20.010 (Commercial Planned Development), Section 17.22.010 (General Commercial), Section 17.24.010 (Heavy Commercial), Section 17.26.010 (Highway Services), Section 17.30.010 (Neighborhood Commercial), Section 17.34.010 (Resort), Section 17.38.010 (Business Park), 17.40.010 (Industrial), Section 17.42.010 (Industrial Park), Section 17.44.010 (Residential-Agricultural) and Section 17.46.010 (Residential-Forest). Changes are proposed to Section 17.54.070(C) (Surfacing of Parking Areas) to require all-weather surfacing, rather than paving, for agricultural and open space uses that require 25 or fewer parking spaces.
