open space & conservation element OSC-6: Agriculture
Only areas below are considered part of the General Plan.
Menifee has an agrarian tradition carrying back to the 1800s when settlers transitioned from quartz mining to farming as a more stable lifestyle. Although the amount of farmland within the city limits is less than it was several decades ago, the farms that do remain are important reminders of the city's historically agrarian lifestyle. Exhibit OSC-5 illustrates significant farmland in the city.
OSC-6: High value agricultural lands available for long-term agricultural production in limited areas of the City.
OCS-6.1: Protect both existing farms and sensitive uses around them as agricultural acres transition to more developed land uses.
