Document Description
Hearing to consider a request by Big Foot Valley, LLC for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2018-00234) for the phased development of outdoor cannabis cultivation canopy, outdoor ancillary nursery, ancillary processing activities, and ancillary transport. Phase 1 includes up to one acre of outdoor cultivation canopy within two separate cultivation areas; up to 3,000 square feet of outdoor ancillary nursery canopy in existing hoop structures; ancillary transport; portable restrooms; a compost area; installation of security fencing and equipment; installation of a new driveway entrance; relocation of six existing 190-watt solar panels; revegetation of a previous as-built driveway; and use of existing parking, water storage tanks, and storage shed. Phase 2 includes ancillary processing within an existing 2,403 square foot barn; realignment of an existing driveway; additional parking; and installation of a 10,000-gallon water tank. The project includes a request to modify the fencing standards set forth in Section 22.10.080 of the County Code to allow deer fencing around the perimeter of each outdoor cultivation area and no fencing around the processing building. The project would result in approximately 4.3 acres of site disturbance, including 3,500 cubic yards of cut and 1,800 cubic yards of fill, on an 88.49-acre parcel. The project is located at 5145 Calf Canyon Hwy, approximately 6 miles northeast of the community of Santa Margarita within the Rural Lands land use category, and within in the Las Pilitas sub-area of the North County Planning Area.
