RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended that the Board of Supervisors:
a. Approve a Lot Line Adjustment between four separate lots of record under Land
     Conservation Contract No. 70-1 and Contract No. 89-2, established by County Resolution
     No. 70-37-1 and County Resolution No. 89-2, with no net decrease in acreage under
     Williamson Act Contracts; as shown on the proposed Lot Line Adjustment map on file in
     Planning File No. PLN090163, subject to the Findings and Evidence in Exhibit B, and
     Conditions of Approval in Exhibit C;
b. Adopt a Resolution authorizing the Chair to execute new or amended Land Conservation
     Contracts in order to rescind a portion of the existing Land Conservation Contract No. 70-1
     and Contract No. 89-2 as they apply to the reconfigured, contracted parcels only and
     simultaneously execute new or amended Land Conservation Contract Nos. 70-1C and 89-2A,
     for the reconfigured, contracted parcels between the County and Henry Alexander LP,
     reflecting the new legal descriptions, current ownership interests and to incorporate any
     legislative changes to State Williamson Act provisions and current County Agricultural
     Preserve Policies or Procedures; and
c. Direct the Clerk of the Board to record the new or amended Contracts.

SUMMARY:
The subject Lot Line Adjustment will reconfigure four existing agricultural parcels totaling
1,290 acres. Each parcel is recognized as a separate legal lot of record as established by a chain
of deeds found in Planning File No. PLN070368 and PLN080090. All of the subject property is
currently under Williamson Act Land Conservation Contracts. The Lot Line Adjustment will
result in Parcel 1 at approximately 834 acres; Parcel 2 at approximately 138 acres; Parcel 3 at
approximately 40 acres; and, Parcel 4 at approximately 278 acres.
DISCUSSION:
Discussion is provided in Exhibit A.

FINANCING:
The subject parcels are currently under Land Conservation Contracts Nos. 70-1 and 89-2. This
will continue the Agricultural Preserve status of the property but will not reduce the assessed
property valuation of the parcels; and, therefore will not have an impact on the County General
Fund.

OTHER AGENCY INVOLVEMENT:
County agency involvement includes the RMA-Planning Department, Public Works, the Office
of the County Counsel, the Water Resources Agency and the California Department of Forestry,
South County. The Office of the County Counsel shall prepare new or amended Contracts
reflecting the changes to existing Land Conservation Contract Nos. 70-1 and 89-2 as applicable
to the reconfigured parcels. The Planning Department, the County Surveyor, and the Assessor’s
Office will review the legal description for the reconfigured parcels for accuracy upon receipt.
