4 Purpose of Presentation
What is zoning? What is the difference between zoning and land use policy? Their relationship? What zones are going to be used, both new and old? Why is zoning on some properties are being changed? How are the zones applied and matched to the land use policy?

5 Antelope Valley Area Plan Update
Background

6 Background Update of the 1986 Antelope Valley Area Plan

Additional stakeholder meetings March 2011: Release of Preliminary Draft Antelope Valley Area Plan August 2011: Notice of Preparation September 2011: EIR Scoping Meeting

Land Use Policy

9 Land Use Policy Rural Preservation Strategy Maintain rural lifestyle
Environment and biology protection Open space preservation Continued agricultural uses Conservation of non-renewable resources Increased mobility options

15 Land Use Policy How the Land Use Policy was applied
Workshop participants helped to define general areas Land use designations within existing communities include “higher” densities, ranging from RL5 on the low end to H30 on the high end Less developed areas are based on the Hazards and Environmental Constraints Map where the lowest densities are applied, ranging from RL40 on the low end to RL10 on the high end

16 Land Use Policy How the Land Use Policy was applied
Hazards and Environmental Constraints Map Class I = 1du/10ac Class II = 1du/20ac Class III = 1du/40ac

17 Land Use Policy How the Land Use Policy was applied

18 Land Use Policy and Zoning
Connection between Land Use Policy and Zoning Land Use Policy provides the overall framework and general direction for development of a parcel Zoning implements Land Use Policy by detailing the specific development standards for individual parcels Zoning has to be consistent with the Land Use Policy

19 Antelope Valley Area Plan Update
Zoning

20 Zoning Determines the permitted uses on a parcel
Spells out specific development standards regulating the use of individual parcels (i.e. setbacks, max heights, min lot sizes etc.) Has the force of law; provisions are enforced by the County Ensures that the exercise of an individual owner’s property rights does not encroach upon the rights of another property owner

21 Zoning - Current R-1: Single-family Residence Zone
R-2: Two-family Residence Zone R-3: Limited Multiple Residence Zone R-A: Residential Agricultural Zone A-1: Light Agriculture Zone A-2: Heavy Agriculture Zone C-1: Restricted Business Zone C-2: Neighborhood Business Zone C-3: Unlimited Commercial Zone M-1: Light Manufacturing Zone M-2: Heavy Manufacturing Zone D-2: Desert-Mountain Zone R-R: Resort-Recreation Zone *This is not an inclusive listing of all zones.

22 Zoning - New R-1: Single-family Residence Zone
R-2: Two-family Residence Zone R-3: Limited Multiple Residence Zone R-A: Residential Agricultural Zone A-1: Light Agriculture A-2: Heavy Agriculture C-RU: Rural Commercial MXD –RU: Rural Mixed Use M-1: Light Manufacturing Zone M-2: Heavy Manufacturing Zone C-R: Commercial Recreation Zone (no C-1, C-2, C-3, D-2 and R-R zones in the AV) *This is not an inclusive listing of all zones.

26 Land Use Policy and Zoning Agricultural

Single Family Residence Animals as pets Crops Crops (no sales) Requires a CUP Raising/breeding of Animals (Commercial) Not permitted 5 hogs/pigs 2 hogs/pigs Riding academies

28 Land Use Policy and Zoning
Density vs Minimum Lot Size Density (Land Use Policy) Determines the number of dwelling units allowed in a given parcel (i.e. RL10 allows 2 units in 20 ac, 4 units in 40 ac, 6 units in 60 ac etc.) determines the number of parcels a property can be subdivided into Minimum Lot Size (Zoning) determines the smallest size any one of the resulting parcels can be (i.e. A-2-10,000 = 10,000 sq ft; A-2-2 = 2 acres)

29 Land Use Policy and Zoning
Density vs Minimum Lot Size Sample Scenario: 40 ac lot, RL10, A-2-2 * RL10 will allow 4 units in 40 acres * A-2-2 will allow newly subdivided lots as small as 2 acres 10 ac 2 ac 34 ac

30 Lot size requirements of Zone (R1, R-A, R-2 or R3)
Land Use Policy and Zoning Density vs Minimum Lot Size Areas with CSDs Minimum lot size = CSD requirements H2, H5, H9, H18 & H30 Lot size requirements of Zone (R1, R-A, R-2 or R3) RL1 1 acre minimum lot size  (A-1-1) RL2, RL5, RL10, RL20 and RL40 2 acre minimum lot size (A-1-2 or A-2-2)
