Document Description
A Mitigated Declaration for the following proposed project: A request by Souji Farms, Inc. for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00094) to establish 1 acre (43,560 square feet) of outdoor cannabis cultivation canopy in hoop houses, 22,000 square feet of mixed-light (indoor) cannabis cultivation canopy, and ancillary cannabis processing. Site improvements would include a proposed 27,000-square-foot greenhouse for mixed-light cultivation and a 900-square-foot building for ancillary processing (i.e. drying, trimming, curing, and storage). The project would result in approximately 1.4 acres (62,441 square feet) of site disturbance on a 167-acre parcel, including the removal of four mature oak trees and approximately 1,533 cubic yards of cut and 1,533 cubic yards of fill, to be balanced on-site. The project site is located within the Rural Lands land use designation in the Nacimiento Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. The project site accessed by an unnamed road off Nacimiento Lake Drive (Assessor’s Parcel Number [APN] 080-041-036), approximately 2 miles northeast of the community of Heritage Ranch and approximately 2,000 feet south of the Monterey County border. *** Documents and Additional Project Information Also Available Online: https://energov.sloplanning.org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService#/plan/783e8b85-ba07-4d4f-9910-01cfa184e6f2?tab=attachments
