Document Description
The proposed cultivation project described herein (Project) includes the cultivation of up to 10,000 square feet (SF) of mixed-light mature canopy located in Trinity County on Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN): 017-440-033-000. The applicant is seeking a Small Mixed-Light Cannabis Cultivation License from the County (CCL-583) and currently holds an Adult-Use Small Mixed-Light Tier 1 Cannabis Cultivation License from the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC; CCL20-0000097, Expires on 2024-07-01). Cultivation activities include approximately 9,000sqft of mature canopy in two (2) existing 30’x100’ hoop houses and one (1) proposed 30’x100’ hoop house, and a proposed 24’x100’ hoop house for immature canopy. Existing cannabis related support infrastructure includes two (2) points of diversion, one (1) not in use and the other for agricultural and domestic purposes; nine (9) 2,500-gallon, eleven (11) 2,600-gallon, four (4) 3,000-gallon, and twelve (12) 5,000-gallon water storage tanks; two (2) 1,000-gallon nutrient mixing tanks; a 32’x50’ Quonset building for agricultural chemical and pesticide storage (7’x21’), immature plant area that will becoming processing (16’x27’), administrative hold (3’x11’), and processing (10’x15’) all within the Quonset building; a 10’x20’ shed for general storage; and a 25’x35’ cannabis waste and composting area. The project proposes a phased transition with the first phase including installation of a proposed 30’x100’ hoop house for mature canopy as well as a 24’x100’ hoop house for immature canopy of the lower pad with existing hoop houses. The second phase includes construction of four (4) additional greenhouses on the upper pad; three (3) 30’x100’ greenhouses for mature canopy with 22.5’x100’ canopy each for a total of 6,750sqft and one (1) 24’x100’ greenhouse for immature canopy. This is previously disturbed area and no trees will be removed. Some minor road improvements will also occur, the project will implement additional gravel or erosion control measures to prevent sediment discharge from the proposed grading. Heavy equipment will be operated by a licensed contractor during the dry season and outside the breeding season for special-status birds (September 1 to November 15). The 24’x100’ hoop house on the lower pad will be removed and the three (3) mature hoop-houses on the lower pad will be transitioned into immature canopy area for a total of approx. 8,832sqft. The project proposes the installation of two (2) 2,500-gallon and ten (10) 5,000-gallon water storage tanks. Power for the Project site is currently provided through a single-phase connection to Trinity Public Utility District’s grid which will be upgraded to a three-phase connection. Water is pumped to the storage tanks from the point of diversion utilizing a Kubota GL11000 generator, and the cultivation area is irrigated via a drip system. The project shall not divert surface water for cannabis activities from April 01 through October 31. The applicant is limited to 500 gallons per day during the forbearance period for domestic and non-cannabis agricultural uses. The rate of diversion to storage shall not exceed 42,000 gallons per day (gpd). Once the greenhouses are constructed and in use, they will be connected to the power grid to power lights and fans. An onsite septic system would serve the Project’s domestic wastewater needs. A more detailed project description can be found in the Appendix C Checklist. SPECIAL NOTES: 1. Applicant has provided supplemental Odor, Light, and Noise Attenuation Plan to fall in compliance with: Resolution NO. 2023-071, “A resolution of the Board of Supervisors of The County of Trinity allowing streamlined approval of cannabis licenses that require CCV’s or the calender year 2023”. 2. The eastern most greenhouse (item #5 on figure 4: project diagram) on the lower pad was measured to be between 85-100 ft. west of Little Barker Creek, a class II stream; this residential vegetable greenhouse will be excluded from cannabis use and is not included in this approval. 3. Supplemental lighting cannot be used in hoop-houses for mixed-light operations without an electrical permit; this determination does not approve the use of lighting within any temporary structure without appropriate permit issuance from the BLDG department.
