In order to protect the public from health and safety hazards and the harm to property values that result from the neglect and deterioration of property, and to preserve the livability, appearance, environment, and social and economic stability of unincorporated Santa Clara County (County), the County is considering adoption of a Community Preservation Ordinance.

  • Abandoned construction
  • Conditions that pose dangers to public health or safety, such as abandonedwells, if they are accessible to unauthorized persons due to inadequatesecurity
  • Building or structure in a state of disrepair such as broken windows, doors, orfences; and deteriorating walls or roof coverings.
  • Overgrown or decayed trees or vegetation creating potential for fire hazards,harboring infestations, or substantially detracting from the aesthetic andproperty values of neighboring properties.
  • Graffiti
  • Unlawfully stored or accumulated garbage and refuse
  • Impermissible outdoor storage such as a shipping container stored outdoors
  • Storing, dismantling, or maintaining vehicles in violation of the existing ZoningOrdinance restrictions

The County has scheduled two public meetings to provide information and solicit feedback and comments relating to the proposed Community Preservation Ordinance. Details of the public meetings below:

File 9555 - Shamrock Seeds Project
+

Description:The project proposes the demolition of existing on-site greenhouses totaling approximately 14,433 square feet (the existing modular office structure, barn, and equipment shed would remain) and construction of a new 10,000-square-foot agricultural research building, parking lot, and two sets of greenhouse structures (measuring approximately 100 feet by 130 feet, and 85 feet by 300 feet). The greenhouses would be internally illuminated during a portion of non-daylight hours. A 90-squarefoot electrical utility building, 40,000-gallon above-ground water tank, and stormwater detention pond would also be constructed.

Since the subject property is located on Holsclaw Road, a County maintained road, and in close proximity to an intersection with Hwy 152, a State Highway, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) may require an encroachment permit to review the Traffic Control Plan (TCP) to avoid any project-related impacts to the State Transportation Network.

The existing agriculture research facility was granted ASA approval in 2007 for its current establishment. The proposed 10,000 research building and greenhouses are intended to consolidate existing research facilities and to provide the environment necessary to conduct seed-related specific experiment activities. The proposed project would not include any increase in the number of existing employees and / or any intensification of the existing operation.

Location:6640 Holsclaw Road, Gilroy

The Public Review Period for this project is from 10/30/2018 until 12/14/2018.
