The Agricultural Review Process is a method for agricultural planners to provide technical expertise to planners on agriculturally related development projects.
The agricultural planner reviews projects and coordinates with the project planner to ensure agriculture issues are addressed and the County’s mission of
Accountability, Customer Focus, and Efficiency (ACE) are achieved.
Discretionary projects proposed on or adjacent to land zoned for agriculture (or land used
for production agriculture) are reviewed. These may include: Coastal Development Permits w/hearing, Comprehensive Plan Amendments, Conditional Use Permits,
Consults, Development Plans, Lot Lot Line Adjustments, Pre-applications, Rezones, Tentative Parcel Maps and Tract Maps. Conditions or mitigations are
recommended on a case by case basis and may include fencing, screening, setbacks, reconfiguring building orientation or relocation of building envelope.
