Document Description
The applicant proposes a use permit regarding a commercial cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution facility. The project would begin with cannabis cultivation in the existing 10,608-ft² building. Two additional buildings would be constructed later as business permits, with 5,760- and 8,400-ft² footprints and two stories each. Volatile manufacturing including cannabis material extraction would take place there, as would additional cannabis cultivation. The full project’s floor area including multiple stories would total 46,263 ft², including an existing 13,934 ft² floor area. Grading with 1,010 yd³ cut and 1,740 yd³ fill would level and prepare the site for the new buildings and create new drainage. Approximately 37,000 ft² of canopy would be grown during full operation. During initial activity, 10 employees would work in the existing building on all days of the week during daytime. Staff would expand by 16 employees following construction of the two additional buildings. Car parking would consist of 32 spaces. Air would be treated with carbon filters to prevent odor, in addition to maintaining a closed-loop air environment.
