Title
Williamson Act Contract Application WAC10-0002 Varozza Trucking Inc.
Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Planning Services is processing a application for a new Williamson Act Contract. of approximately 240 acres on a portion of an existing contract (agricultural preserve No. 64, approx. 477 acres) as a result of property reconfiguration under Lot Line Adjustment BLA 08-0057 and land ownership changes. The property is located on the east and west sides of Bonetti road, 1.25 miles east of the intersection with French Creek Road in the Shingle Springs area, Supervisorial District 2
