Title: 21 - Coastal Zoning

Chapter: 11A - RCA2 Designated Resource Conservation Area District

Section: 10 - Intent

Resource conservation areas are those environmentally sensitive habitat areas which are identified by the General Plan Coastal Element as wetlands, farmed wetlands, riparian vegetation, estuary and coastal sand dunes. The designated resource conservation area zone is intended to designate the location and type of resource conservation areas for which specific data has been reviewed, set forth uses and development guidelines for the various sensitive habitat areas and establish any special requirements for development permits in order to protect and enhance the quality and productivity of these sensitive resource areas as mandated by state and federal regulations. Changes of zone from designated resource conservation area to another classification are to be made subject to the requirements of Section 21.11.060 and only where such uses are in accord with the General Plan or adopted specific plan.

     For the purposes of Section 21.52.020(A)(4), the designated resource conservation area uses listed under the principal permitted use section herein shall be considered as the principal permitted use in the California Coastal Zone. Variances and adjustments to the district\'s requirements and standards shall not be considered a principal permitted use for the purposes of Section 21.52.020(A)(4).

     The regulations set forth in this chapter apply in all RCA2 districts and are subject to the provisions of Chapters 21.02 through 21.60.
