Document Description
The City of Adelanto is located in the High Desert region of San Bernardino County just north of the San Gabriel Mountains. The developer proposes the development of a cannabis cultivation facility on an 8.34-acre site in the City of Adelanto. The project site is comprised of Assessor Parcel Number (APN) 0459-053-53-0-000. The Applicant proposes eight buildings, 20,000 square feet (SF) each in size, designed to facilitate the cultivation and processing of medicinal marijuana. The City of Adelanto Code Section Chapter 17.80: Cannabis Special Use (d) states that, “Indoor Medical Cannabis Cultivation Conditionally Permitted. Indoor adult- use and medical cannabis cultivation is conditionally permitted in the City only as expressly specified in this Section.” An evaluation of the proposed project indicates that it meets the criteria referenced in the code, and therefore, the application for the cannabis cultivation facility requires the approval of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) in the Airport Development District, the zone within which the project is located.
