The Department of Cannabis Control, pursuant to authority granted under Business and Procession Code Division 10, Chapter 2, Section 26012, approved a Cannabis Cultivation License for a Medium Mixed-Light Tier 1 license.
The project involves the construction and operation of a cultivation premises of 19,440 square-feet of mature and 2,448-feet immature canopy in an AG-1 zone. Construction activities occurring on-site will be grading, interior improvements and installation for the greenhouses, exterior improvements (light deprivation curtain); additional storage sheds for chemicals and fertilizers, firewood, and farm equipment; and employee rest area. Irrigation will be provided by an existing groundwater well. Electricity will be provided by PG&E as on-grid power with an emergency Calaveras County approved propane generator for backup. The operation will employ 2-3 permanent on two shifts.
All exterior lighting will be directed downward onto project premises away from property lines. Supplemental lighting will only occur with greenhouse light deprivation curtains drawn and shielding the light from the nighttime sky. The Generator will be located outside the boundaries of the premise area meeting setback requirements. The premise area is set back a minimum of 1000-feet from sensitive use areas.
