Ideal Boat & Camper Storage began operating as an equipment storage yard in 1964, and in subsequent years, obtained various county approvals, including two site development review (“SDR”) approvals, the latest in 1990. In 1993, the County adopted a new area planning document which sought to promote viticulture in the area. In 1994, the area plan was incorporated in the comprehensive general plan for the east area of the county. In November 2000, the voters of Alameda County approved Measure D, which among other purposes, sought to protect agricultural and open space. Measure D restricted the urban expansion areas, and added new development requirements.
