Document Description
A Mitigated Negative Declaration for the following proposed project: A Request by Ryan Lovejoy for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00225) to allow for the phased development of 22,000 square feet of indoor cannabis cultivation, three-acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation, 4,000 square feet of ancillary nursery, 3,000 square feet of drying in 9 permitted seatrain containers, and 320 square feet of storage in one seatrain container. The project includes the phased construction of six (6) 4,320-square-feet greenhouses totaling 25,920-square-feet of floor area (to house the 22,000-square-feet of indoor cannabis cultivation and 3,920-square-feet of ancillary nursery). The project would also include extension of a water line from an existing well to serve proposed cannabis activities, construction of 20-foot wide access road, and 26 parking spaces. An existing single-family residence, agricultural accessory structure, and approximately 30 acres of barley cultivation will remain.
