A request by Austen Connella of SLOCAL ROOTS FARMS, LLC for Minor Use Permit DRC2020-00130 to amend existing Minor Use Permit DRC2018-00045 and Modification to the Minor Use Permit (Substantial Conformance) DRC2020-00052, which allowed a phased cannabis development of up to 7,359 square feet (sf) of outdoor cultivation canopy, 13,600 sf of indoor cultivation canopy, 2,160 sf of indoor ancillary nursery canopy, 900 sf of ancillary processing, ancillary transport, supporting site components / improvements, and modifications to fencing, parking, and setback standards. The project has been in operation since July 16, 2020. The applicant is requesting modifications for a revised phasing plan that temporarily allows up to 28,150 sf of outdoor cultivation canopy in Phase 1 and up to 18,260 sf of indoor cultivation canopy within greenhouses in Phase 5. To accommodate the construction of greenhouses for indoor cultivation in Phase 5, 18,260 sf of outdoor cultivation canopy established in Phase 1 would be removed. A modification from the setback standard set forth in County Code Section 22.40.050.D.3.b is requested to reduce the outdoor cultivation setback from 300 feet to 75 feet from the north property line. All proposed modifications would occur in areas previously approved for development. The project would result in approximately one acre of site disturbance on a 60-acre site. The project is located in the Rural Lands (RL) land use category at 7515 & 7731 Suey Creek Road in the South County Subarea of the South County Planning Area. The requested amendment was found to be in conformance with the previously adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) (ED19-104), and an amendment to the MND is attached.
