Document Description
A request by Nouel Riel Cellars Incorporated and Coastal Elevations for a minor use permit (DRC2018-00018) to establish up to 20,000 sf of indoor cannabis cultivation on a portion of a 41 acre project site. On-site development would include construction of four new greenhouses totaling 19,920 sf combined, and conversion of an existing 2,635 sf barn for drying and storage of cannabis. The project would also use an existing 80-sf storage shed and a new 160-sf storage container for materials storage (e.g., pesticides, fertilizer, soil amendments, and potting materials). The project would employ up to six people and would operate seven days per week between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm. A modification from the parking standards set forth in Land Use Ordinance section 22.18.050.C. 1 is requested to reduce the required number of spaces from 40 to 12. The project site is located at 7755 Airport Rd on the west side of Airport Rd approx 500 ft south of Estrella Rd and 2.7 miles southeast of the community of San Miguel. The site is located in the Salinas River Sub-area of the North County Planning Area.
