Document Description
Request by Brad Goodrow for a Conditional Use Permit for a green waste comprising facility including: approval of an existing 5.86 acre compost research facility as a permanent facility, including the grinding and processing of green waste into finished compost material; a 2.17 acre expansion of the facility (for a total of 8.03 acres, including the addition of vegetable food waste composting; a 4,000 sf gypsum processing building; a 3,000 sf pole barn to store equipment out of the elements; an ~960 sf shed to house biodiesel mixing equipment; and an expansion of the current composting volume capacity from 12,500 tons to a maximum 50,000 tons, as permitted by the California Intergrated Waste Management Board. The project would result in ~9 acres of disturbance and ~39,000 cy of cut and 39,000 cy of fill on a 440 acre parcel. No land use permits were obtained to initiate the existing 5.86 acre composting facility. As listed above, a portion of the proposed project would be to legalize the existing, as-built portion of the facility as a conditionally allowable use on the Agriculture designated parcel. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 3730 Calf Canyon Road (hwy 58), ~0.5 miles east of O'Donovan Road, southeast of the community of Creston.
