Document Description
Application No. 20-23, the Mendota Valley Agricultural Holdings Project (Project), would entail purchase and development of 59 acres (Project Site) of an existing 114-acre parcel (APN 013-030-68ST) to construct and operate a commercial cannabis facility. The City of Mendota, which currently owns the 114-acre parcel, would sell the Project Site to the applicant as Parcels 1 and 2 (approximately 35 acres and 24 acres, respectively) via deed while retaining ownership of the remaining 55 acres. The proposed Project would include approximately 39.7 acres (1.7 million square feet) of open-field cannabis cultivation. Processing of harvested cannabis is currently anticipated to occur by hand within two 30,000-sf head houses onsite. The cannabis facility would include cultivation activities in compliance with current restrictions on allowable cannabis garden canopy (i.e., mature plant coverage). The Project would also include an ancillary nursery and processing of harvested cannabis. Distribution of cannabis and development of supporting onsite facilities are also proposed.
