The application is for a General Development Plan, Administrative Permit and Design Approval to allow the construction of a 100 unit agricultural employee housing complex comprised of two bedroom apartment units and related facilities. The project site encompasses approximately 4.5 acres (excluding the softball field and the soccer field) located approximately 0.32 miles southwest of Spreckels Boulevard. The housing project will be occupied primarily during the Salinas Valley harvest season from April through November. Tanimura & Antle Fresh Foods, Inc. (T&A) proposes to use the housing for its agricultural employees, and the housing will be designed to accommodate between 200 and 800 individuals. Each two bedroom, two bathroom apartment unit will be suitable to house eight H2A Visa workers, i.e. seasonal employees who reside permanently outside the United States. The H2A Visa recruits do not come to the U.S. with automobiles, as T&A provides the transportation to and from the country of origin and the facility. Depending on T&A's labor needs, the apartments may also be available to local agricultural employees at a conventional occupancy. T&A will provide bus transportation between the facility and the ranches where the employees work.
