County Name Kern ( South CA Region )
Lead Agency Kern County
Abstract
The project entails two conditional use permits (CUPs) the first of which is for the development of a surface mining and reclamation plan on 217 acres of a 231 acre project site. The second CUP is for the establishment of two batch plants, one asphalt and one concrete in addition to ancillary facilities, which would operate during the course of mining and continue to operate after cessation of mining. A change of zone classification from A-1 MH (Limited Agriculture- Mobile Home Combining) to A (Exclusive Agriculture) is necessary to accommodate the proposed batch plants as such facilities are only allowed in the A-1 District for temporary periods of time. Because of the proposed mine's design, the applicant is also seeking an amendment to the Circulation Element of the Kern County General Plan to eliminate the reservation of section and mid-section lines in the project area as major and secondary highway alignments, respectively for future road usage. Discretionary actions include: (a) A conditional use permit to allow a surface mining operation and development of a reclamation plan in accordance with the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA) of 1975 in a A zone district (CUP 6, Map 113); (b) A conditional use permit to allow permanent asphalt and concrete batch plants in a A zone district (CUP 7, Map 113); (c) A change of zone classification from A-1 MH to A or more restrictive zone district (ZC 2, Map 113); and (d) and (e) Amend the Circulation Element of the Kern County General Plan to eliminate future road reservations on section and midsection lines within the project boundaries as major highway and secondary highway alignments.
