C/V ZONE (CITRUS/VINEYARD)

SECTION 14.71. INTENT. The Board of Supervisors (“Board”) finds that there is a need in the County of Riverside for a zone classification within the “Citrus Vineyard Rural Policy Area” of the Riverside County General Plan that would encourage agricultural cultivation, vineyards, and wineries, that would preserve the rural lifestyle, wine-making atmosphere and long term viability of the wine-industry where such activities are occurring and that would protect such areas from incompatible uses which could result in reduced agricultural productivity and increased urbanization within the policy area.

The Citrus/Vineyard (C/V) zone classification is intended to meet the above-referenced objectives. Limited incidental commercial uses, such as wine sales, sampling rooms, restaurants, delicatessens, bed and breakfast inns, hotels and special occasion facilities shall be permitted only when they are secondary, and directly related, to the agricultural operations as defined in Section 14.72. The intent of allowing limited incidental commercial uses is to provide economic viability to the primary vineyard and winery operations. In conjunction with development, the use of rural road standards as outlined on Ordinance No. 460 (Regulating the Division of Land) shall be implemented so as to reinforce the rural intent of this zone classification. The introduction of curbs, gutters, and streetlights shall be discouraged.

In addition, the Board finds that there is a need for additional development standards within the “Citrus Vineyard Policy Area” of the Riverside County General Plan that would enhance winemaking atmosphere and long-term viability of the wine-industry. The Board further finds that there is a need for allowing clustering of residential density to encourage permanent preservation of vineyards and innovation in design, planning, and management of new tract maps and parcel maps within the Citrus Vineyard Policy Area of the General Plan.

ARTICLE XIVc

C-C/V ZONE (COMMERCIAL CITRUS/VINEYARD)

SECTION 14.81. INTENT. The Board of Supervisors ("Board") finds that there is a need in the County of Riverside for a zone classification within the "Citrus Vineyard Rural Policy Area" of the Riverside County General Plan that would encourage agricultural cultivation, vineyards, and wineries that would preserve the rural lifestyle, wine-making atmosphere and long term viability of wine-industry where such activities are occurring and that would protect such areas from incompatible uses which could result in reduced agricultural productivity and increased urbanization within the policy area. The Board further finds that there is a need in the County of Riverside for small-scale, commercial uses that would not require a high level of public services and that would enhance the agricultural activities occurring in the policy area. The Commercial-Citrus/Vineyard (C-C/V) zone classification is intended to meet the above-referenced objectives and is used very meticulously.

In conjunction with development, the use of rural road standards as outlined in Ordinance No. 460 (Regulating the Division of Land) shall be implemented so as to reinforce the intent of this zone classification. The introduction of curbs, gutters, and streetlights shall be discouraged.
