Present Land Use
The Property is vacant land, surrounded by existing vacant land in all directions. The Zoning is Light Industrial/Manufacturing (M-1) and surrounded by the same zoning to the north, east, and west. Open space (O/RA) zoning exists south of the Project, on the other side of California City Blvd.
Document Description
The Project proposes approximately 194,400 SF of commercial cannabis cultivation and one administrative office of approximately 16,910 SF that is planned within a maximum of two (2) industrial buildings not to exceed 211,310 SF. The Project incorporates a minimum of one (1) retention/detention basin that encompass approximately 0.45-acres of the Project site. The Project will be developed in one phase, starting with construction of the cultivation building and then the administrative office building following shortly thereafter. The Project will construct frontage improvements to California City Blvd., which consist of approximately 324 linear feet (LF). The Project site plan incorporates the future expansion of one internal collector easement that provides emergency vehicle ingress and egress. The Project will also construct acres, approximately 23 parking spaces, and ancillary landscaping, hardscape, BMPs, and associated grading, paving and site development. The Project anticipates an extension of a sewer lateral line, into the Project site, from an existing 12-inch sewer trunk line within California City Blvd., as well as the extension of potable water, which will be served by an existing 8-inch main line, located in California City Blvd.
