Document Description
The proposed cultivation project described herein (Project) is the continuation of existing cultivation activities located in Trinity County on Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) 008-260-002. The applicant currently holds an Adult Use – Small Mixed-Light Cannabis Cultivation License from the California Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) (CCL18-0002181, expires 2024-06-19) and is applying for a cannabis cultivation license from the Trinity County Planning Department (CCL-181) to cultivate up to 10,000 square feet (sf) of mature mixed-light canopy. The existing cultivation currently includes three (3) 30’x109’ greenhouses and one (1) proposed 30’x109’ greenhouse for mature canopy; an exisiting 22’x88’ hoophouse and one (1) proposed 30’x109’ greenhouse for immature canopy. Other structures used to support cultivation operations include a 30’x50’ metal shop for processing, harvest storage, chemical storage & admin hold; a permitted groundwater well for agricultural uses, two (2) 3,000 gallon water storage tanks, one (1) 2,000 gallon nutrient mixing tank, a 10’x20’ compost area, approx. 70 solar panels and a 10’x12’ general storage shed with solar batteries, power system installed. A more detailed project description can be found in the Appendix C Checklist.SPECIAL NOTES: The proposed project aims to redefine the current cultivation areas by 6,540 ft2 outside of the existing footprint with the installation of two (2) additional 30’ by 109’ greenhouses. The plants will be in beds in each of the four (4) mature greenhouses. Rows in between each bed will reduce the area of plants keeping the total mature canopy no greater than 10,000 ft². The fifth greenhouse will be for immature plants. The property owner would also like to install an 80,000 gallon above-ground water storage tank, which will require permitting. There is an existing A-frame to be permitted that will serve as employee housing. A third septic system and leach lines are planned for installation near the shop. Less than ¼ of an acre of new disturbance will be required for this project as grading will be required to prepare the sites. Heavy machinery will be needed for grading, but the licensee anticipates being able to install the greenhouses with hand tools. There will be no tree removal required for greenhouse construction as the two proposed sites are already devoid of tree cover, despite the fact that Google Earth imagery depicts tree canopy. The estimated timeline for this construction is within the next three years. Submission of various pre-construction surveys will be required prior to any grading activities and/or issuance of additional Building permits that involve ground disturbance. Drip irrigation is used to supplement the amount of well water used. Road maintenance and re-graveling occur on-site as needed.
