Unless pulled from the consent agenda by the Planning Department Hearing Officer for separate action, the following items will be acted on collectively because individual public hearings were not requested or required pursuant to Land Use Ordinance Section 22.062.050B.4.b. or Coastal Zone Land Use Ordinance Sections 23.02.033b.(2)(ii) and 23.02.033b.(4)(ii):
3.
A request by Charles Hench for a Minor Use Permit / Coastal Development Permit (DRC2019-00270) to allow the demolition of an existing 325 square-foot carport and the construction of a new 485 square-foot living area, 745 square-foot attached garage, and 60 square-foot permeable deck to an existing single-family residence. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 1,800 square feet on the 7,000 square-foot parcel. The proposed project is within the Residential Single Family land use category and is located at 486 Lancaster Street, in the community of Cambria. The site is in the North Coast Planning Area. Also, to be considered is the determination that this project is categorically exempt from environmental review under CEQA.

The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 5,300 square feet of a 12,700 square foot parcel. The proposed project is within the Residential Single-Family land use category and is located 2215 Madison Street, in the community of Cambria. The site is in the North Coast Planning Area.

5.
A request by Ryan Lovejoy for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00193) to allow for the phased development of three acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation, 22,000 square feet of indoor cannabis cultivation, 4,000 square feet of ancillary nursery, 3,000 square feet of drying within nine seatrain containers, and 320 square feet of storage in one seatrain container. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 6 acres on an approximately 42.2-acre parcel. Also, the applicant is requesting three modifications: (1) to reduce the requirement of 60 parking spaces to 26 parking spaces; (2) to reduce both side-yard setbacks from 300 feet to 205 feet from the east and west property lines; and (3) alternative screening and fencing to allow for wildlife passage. The project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 11111 Bitterwater Road, approximately 5 miles west of the village of California Valley. The site is within the Carrizo Planning Area. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on March 30, 2020, for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Energy, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Noise and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning.org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s).

HEARING ITEMS
6.
Hearing to consider a request by Brett Finley/Templeton Patient Cooperative for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00016) for the phased establishment of 3 acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation, 21,600 square feet (sf) of indoor mixed-light cannabis cultivation, ancillary transport, and ancillary cannabis processing activities on a 97-acre parcel. A 2,208-sf building would be constructed and used for a security office, processing of cannabis grown on-site, and pesticide and fertilizer storage. Indoor (mixed-light) cultivation would occur within five proposed 4,320-sf greenhouses. A modification to the parking standards is requested to reduce the required number of parking spaces from 46 to 8 spaces. The project would result in approximately 4.16 acres of site disturbance including 415 cubic yards of cut and 415 cubic yards of fill to be balanced on-site. The project site is located within the Agriculture land use designation at 630 El Pomar Road, approximately 0.3 mile west of the community of Templeton in the El Pomar-Estrella Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning.org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s).

A request by Terez-Maria Blanchard of Old Creek Ranch PTP for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00081) to allow for the establishment of 3 acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation and ancillary transport of cannabis products grown on-site on a portion of two parcels totaling 410 acres. The project would result in site disturbance of approximately 2.03 acres including minimal surface clearing and grubbing associated with installation of security fencing and manual preparation of the cultivation sites. The project includes a request to modify the screening and fencing standards set forth in LUO 22.40.050.D.6 to waive the standard for solid fencing materials to allow for the installation of electrified deer fencing to enclose each of the proposed cultivation areas. The project site is located within the Agriculture land use designation at 12520 Santa Rita Road, approximately 4 miles northeast of the community of Cayucos in the Adelaida Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on May 5, 2020, for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Agriculture & Forestry Resources, Biological Resources, Energy, Geology and Soils, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Hydrology & Water Quality, and Wildfire, and are included as conditions of approval.
