Notice Of Public Hearing, Lassen County Planning Commission



The Lassen County Planning Commission solicits the aid of public agencies and the general public in consideration of the following item:

Applicant and Property Owner:  Laurence and Denice Crabtree

File:  Rezone #2022-001 and Parcel Map #2022-003

Project: Proposal to rezone a single 79-acre legal parcel from A-1 (General Agricultural District) to A-3 (Agricultural District), and divide said parcel into a 1-acre parcel (Parcel 1, “homesite” parcel) and a 78-acre parcel (Parcel 2), pursuant to Lassen County Code Section 18.108.250 (Segregation of Homesites in Agricultural Zones). The proposed rezone is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under Sections 15061(b)(3) and 15183 of the CEQA Guidelines, as the A-3 zoning district is generally more restrictive than the A-1 zoning district and a rezoning of the subject parcel to the A-3 district is consistent with the Lassen County zoning code and Lassen County General Plan, 2000. Additionally, pursuant to Section 15300.4 of the CEQA Guidelines, the proposed parcel map is exempt from CEQA, as the segregation of homesites has been identified by Lassen County Board Resolution No. 01-043 as locally exempt under Section 15315 of the CEQA Guidelines.

Location: The parcel is located at 661-960 Susanville Road, approximately 4 miles northeast of Bieber, CA.

Zoning:  The subject parcel is currently zoned A-1 (General Agricultural District) and has a land use designation of “Intensive Agriculture” pursuant to the Lassen County General Plan, 2000.

A.P.N.:   003-090-025
