The proposed project is a request by Canna Organic Farms for a Minor Use Permit (MUP, DRC2019-00049) to establish 22,000 square feet (sf) of indoor (mixed-light) cannabis canopy, 5,500 sf of ancillary cannabis nursery canopy, 1,000 sf of ancillary processing, ancillary, transport of cannabis grown on-site, as well as other related site improvements that include two new . driveway approaches, portable restrooms, security lighting, a septic tank and leach field system, an equipment storage shed, a 320 sf cannabis product storage container, a compost area, two water storage tanks, a parking area, and security fencing. Indoor (mixed-light) ancillary cannabis nursery products would be grown within six interconnected greenhouses with a total floor area of 6,880 sf. Five of the greenhouses would be 1,200 sf in floor area and would support 1,000 square feet of nursery canopy per building; a single the 880 sf greenhouse would support 500 square feet of nursery canopy, with remaining areas consisting of walkways. The nursery greenhouses would also be constructed with concrete footings and plants would be planted directly into the ground. Ancillary nursery products would be used to germinate and propagate seeds to support on-site cultivation activities and no immature plants would be transferred off-site.
The project includes a request for a parking modification to allow for the minimum number of parking spaces to be reduced from 21 to eight. The project would result in 792 cubic yards (cy) of cut and 680 cy of fill and a total site disturbance of approximately 2.67 acres on a 36.4-acre parcel.
