Reasons for Exemption
Class 1-Existing Facilities. The proposed project is located in a previously developed parcel. The building that will be used for the proposal is existing (Built approximately in the mid-1990s) and the applicant does not propose to expand the existing building. The existing building was previously used for industrial manufacturing of shower doors and shower enclosures. All proposed cannabis activities will occur within the building and no new exterior construction or grading is proposed for the completion of this project. Only interior maintenance work will be needed, however, the applicant will need to obtain the required permits for interior work. The property has an existing designated truck delivery area, an existing paved parking lot with approximately 95 spaces for employees (However, the full time max employees proposed are 12, with respect to seasonal employees during harvest season), an existing well and water tank, and existing utilities that supports the building. The proposed project is not anticipated to have a potential impact on traffic as the proposal will consist of approximately 2 to 6 deliveries/shipments/distribution trips per week and a minimum of 12 vehicle trips per day due to employees and staff. The access to the site is an existing paved street which is approximately 37 feet wide that will safely handle any traffic generated by the Work Right project, and no fugitive dust emission impacts are expected. The existing access road and project parcel is equipped with storm water drainages that will remove roadway contamination from public waterways, which in result no impacts to storm water drainage patterns are anticipated. Additionally, the existing building will be equipped with filtration systems to prevent the movement of odors, chemicals, pesticides and other air borne contaminants out of or into the existing building.
