County of Monterey
Present Land Use
General Plan: Farmlands 40-160 acres; Zoning: Farmlands (F/40)

Document Description
The 45 proposed project sites contain existing greenhouses that were previously used for various agricultural production, including herbs, crops, and cut flowers. The project sites would require commercial cannabis permits to convert and reuse the existing greenhouses and industrial structures for cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, post-harvest production, and distribution. A large portion of the proposed project sites (31) are currently utilizing the existing greenhouses and other structures on the sites for cannabis production. In addition to the 31 sites with existing operational greenhouses, 14 sites would convert existing greenhouses to cannabis production uses. The project would not require demolition of existing facilities or construction of new facilities, as the cannabis operations would use existing greenhouses or buildings. Should any sites require demolition of rebuilding in the future, additional CEQA review may be required when such activities are proposed.
