Document Description
An Initial Study-Mitigated Negative Declaration for a Conditional Use Permit for Rodney Patton (P-18-23). The CUP is seeking approval to expand an existing Type 2 “Small Outdoor” commercial cannabis cultivation license, permitted by Trinity County since 2016, into a Type 3 “Medium Outdoor” commercial cannabis cultivation license, as defined in Trinity County Ordinance 315-849, to allow for up to 43,560 square feet (1 acre) of mature canopy split between two contiguous properties (APNs 109-750-13 [Parcel 1] and 019-750-17 [Parcel 2]). The CUP is also seeking to convert a Type 13 “Transport-Only” license, under identical ownership/licensure, into a “Type 11” Distribution license for up to 500 square feet; in addition, the applicant is applying to add a Type 4 commercial “Nursery” license, which would include the sale of immature cannabis plants, seeds and auxiliary sales to licensed cultivators and retailers. The applicant has also applied for a variance concurrently with the CUP from the limitations of location, to site the cultivation area less than five hundred (500) feet from the adjacent property lines. All of these actions are considered the “proposed project”.
