The project consists of indoor cannabis cultivation on approximately 35 acres of previously disturbed land surrounded by properties with cultivated and uncultivated agricultural fields, as well as disturbed but undeveloped lands. The 35-acre project site is part of a 47-acre lease agreement between the City of Lemoore and the project applicant. The lease agreement includes an additional 12-acre parcel located just north of the project site. However, no activity is being proposed on the 12-acre site at this time and any future uses will be subject to further environmental analysis under CEQA. The project requires a lease agreement between the City of Lemoore and the project applicant for cannabis cultivation activities on the proposed 35-acre project site and approval of a Project Development Agreement by the Lemoore City Council. The project site has a City of Lemoore General Plan land use designation of Light Industrial and is within the ML (Light Industrial) zone district, which allows for the indoor cultivation of cannabis (Lemoore Municipal Code 4-8-4.A.1). The project also requires all the necessary cannabis-related permits issued by the State of California. As proposed, the project proposes to conduct indoor cannabis cultivation within steal hoop houses and includes a cargo container that will have an office area, house the computerized irrigation and security monitoring system, and stock tanks.
