Chevron Land and Development Company & Chevron Environmental Management (Chevron) has submitted an application to the County for the rezoning and clean up (remediation) of the Avila Tank Farm in order for the property to be used as a resort. On September 10, 2013 the Board of Supervisors authorized planning staff to process the Specific Plan Amendment and Coastal Plan Amendment which would change the zoning of the property from its current "industrial" zoning to "recreation." To implement this project, Chevron has submitted the following requests:

  • Development Plan Permit/Coastal Development Permit (CDP) for remediation of soil and groundwater contamination that currently exists on the project site;
  • General Plan/Specific Plan and Local Coastal Program (LCP) amendments to change the site’s land use designation from Industrial to Recreation, and include specific standards and guidelines for redevelopment of the project site as a visitor serving resort which is proposed to be completed in the future by a separate developer; and
  • Vesting Tentative Tract Map/CDP to allow a nine-lot subdivision and the preliminary design of grading, private roads, and infrastructure improvements associated with the redevelopment plan for recreational and resort uses. The recreational and resort use would be constructed in the future but through this application and review process Chevron would subdivide the property for the future development.

The Notice of Preparation and the Initial Study for the project have been completed and are attached in the link below.
