Document Description
The proposed project is a request by RP Agrochimex Inc. (“RPA”) for a Minor Use Permit to allow for the development of outdoor cannabis cultivation and ancillary structures on a 130-acre parcel. The project proposes a 3-acre cannabis cultivation facility and support infrastructure, including the development of 2.6 acres of hoop house structures for outdoor cannabis cultivation, two 2,880 square foot hoop houses to be used as an outdoor ancillary nursery, and ancillary structures that include a 900 square foot office building and two cargo containers for equipment storage. There is an existing metal agricultural barn that would be converted and used for ancillary processing and transport of the product off-site. The project proposes installation of outdoor lighting for security along fencing that would surround the development. A new 45,000-gallon water tank would be installed south east of the proposed office building for combined domestic and fire protection. Existing on-site agricultural roads would be upgraded to comply with the County of San Luis Obispo (County) and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) standards. The project includes establishment of parking areas within two flat areas adjacent to the existing agricultural barn and proposed office building. The project also includes installation of an on-site solar system. The project applicant is requesting a setback modification per County Land Use Ordinance (LUO) Section 22.40.050D.3.e. The proposed project would result in approximately 5.4 acres of ground disturbance. Ground disturbance activities include installation of new fencing around the cultivation and nursery areas, installation of planting beds and hoop houses in the cultivation and nursery areas, installation of the on-site solar system, and grading to support the driveway improvements and construction of building pads for the office building. The project would involve grading approximately 2.3 acres to support improvements to the existing driveway and construction of new building pads for the office building. Construction would result in approximately 2,102 cubic yards of cut and 1,653 cubic yards of fill, resulting in a total grading volume of approximately 3,755 cubic yards. The project is located at 248 Carrisa Highway within the Shanndon-Carrizo Sub Planning Area of the North County Area Plan. *** Documents and Additional Project Information Also Available Online: https://energov.sloplanning.org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService#/plan/93474330-bc7d-48d8-8fb3-023d87012a19?tab=attachments
