On July 14, 2021, the Board of Supervisors directed the Chief Administrative Officer to investigate the feasibility of expanding the Winery Ordinance into additional Zoning Ordinance Use Regulations, such as Rural Residential, and to return with options to the Board for further direction. Rick Engineering (Consultant). is developing a feasibility analysis for the unincorporated area, which will analyze the feasibility of winery expansions into other zones that currently do not allow winery operations. This action does not amend the Tiered Winery Ordinance.
This analysis will be coordinated with the Sustainable Land Use Framework project and will take vehicle miles traveled (VMT) into consideration. The final proposed feasibility analysis will develop options to present to the Board to provide staff with further direction. The Consultant is collecting GIS data including, but not limited to, parcel level mapping of all current wineries, areas zoned Rural Residential, and agricultural lands. The analysis can inform potential code changes that could result in winery development in the unincorporated area into zones such as Rural Residential.
