Document Description
The proposed project is a request by White Oak Farms for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2019-00131) to allow for development of an indoor (mixed-light) cannabis cultivation site on a single 40.7-acre parcel. The project would construct up to 27,500 square feet of greenhouses to support up to 22,000 square-feet of indoor (mixed-light) cannabis cultivation canopy including ancillary nursery and ancillary processing, and a 2,350 square foot utility and storage unit with eight-foot-tall security fencing around the perimeter of the proposed development site and the installation of security cameras. Other proposed structures include two 2,500-gallon water storage tanks, fencing, security lighting, and walkways/landscaping within the project boundaries. A 22 kilowatt-hour (kWh) 60-panel ground-mounted, grid-tied solar system would be installed and would produce approximately 37,000 kWh of energy annually for use for cultivation activities. An existing hay barn currently located in the project area would be demolished. The project would result in approximately 72,000 square feet (1.7 acres) of ground disturbance on the 40.7-acre site, including 6,558 cubic yards of cut and fill. Also requested is a modification of the parking standards to reduce the required number of parking spaces from 55 to 5. The project site is located within the Agriculture land use designation at 10150 Bar Bb Lane, approximately 14 miles east of the city of Arroyo Grande in the Huasna-Lopez Sub Area of the South County Planning Area.
