Document Description
Pura Vineyards proposes to develop a cannabis cultivation operation (proposed project) located approximately 2.5 miles southeast of the community of Kelseyville, CA at 6700 Kelseyville Road in unincorporated Lake County. Lake County is located within the northcentral portion of the state and is bound by Mendocino and Sonoma Counties to the west, Napa County to the south, Yolo and Colusa counties to the east, and Glenn County to the northeast. Figure 1: Regional Location Map shows the proposed project area in relation to the surrounding areas. The proposed project area includes a total of five assessor parcels (APN) with a total area of 314.48 acres. The APNs and acreage of these individual parcels are as follows: 007-018-02 (60.7 acres), 007-018-04 (59.09 acres), 007-018-11 (115.46 acres) 007-029-04 (19.84 acres), 007-029-05 (59.39 acres). Cultivation is proposed to occur on two of the parcels, 007-029-04, and 007-029-05. The remaining parcels 007-018-02, 007-018-04, 007-018-11 are owned by the project applicant but no cultivation is proposed. These contiguous parcels are included to meet the Lake County Zoning Ordinance requirement of at least 20 acres of uncultivated area for every 1 acre of cultivation. The applicant is proposing 13 (thirteen) A-Type 3 outdoor license types and 2 (two) A-Type 4 nursery licenses. It should be noted that the cultivation site would be accessed via an interior road and driveway that connects to State Highway 29 using APN 007-030-21 (22.44 acres). The applicant has an agreement with the property owner for the access. The gate at the property line would be widened from 14 feet to 20 feet, consistent with the Caltrans request and to accommodate two-way ingress and egress. This improvement is considered a part of the project. The applicant is in the process and will obtain an easement from Caltrans for the improvement.
