This project is a Special Purpose Plan (SPP) and Development Agreement application for a Commercial Cannabis Business Park proposed pursuant to Title 9 of the San Joaquin County Municipal Code. If approved, the applicant will lease a portion of the existing property to future Commercial Cannabis Licensees, which cannot operate without a County and California State license pursuant to Title 4. The leasing of space for licensees is consistent with the SPP/Cannabis Business Park defined in Title 4. The applicant does not intend to obtain a Commercial Cannabis License itself. The Development Agreement serves to address any indirect expenses pertaining to the project. No potentially significant environmental impacts are anticipated.
