Document Description
The Project would develop one acre of outdoor cannabis canopy on a ±33.77-acre agricultural parcel. The project site contains a single distinct cannabis garden area including a 50,000 sf. to accommodate 1-Acre of outdoor canopy, with an additional premises area of approximately 17,000 square ft. outside of the garden area. The main access driveway is located to the west of the site running off South Railroad Flat Road. Water for the Project would be provided from an onsite well. No wastewater is anticipated to be generated from the cultivation operation as the cannabis plants will be fed via drip irrigation.

Electrical Service to the property is provided by PG&E.
