A request by Tablas Creek Vineyard for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2019-00035) to allow the expansion of a previously approved 17,000-square-foot wine processing facility and an approximately 2,300-square-foot tasting room. The proposed expansion would allow the phased construction of a 9,000-square-foot wine case good storage building at full buildout. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 1.2 acres (including access improvements) on a 110-acre parcel. No changes to annual case production is proposed. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 9339 Adelaida Road, approximately 11 miles west of the City of Paso Robles. The project site is in the Adelaida Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. Also to be considered is the environmental determination that the project is categorically exempt under CEQA, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(2). A Notice of Exemption has been prepared pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15062.

The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 2 acres on a 4.17-acre parcel. The proposed project is within the Commercial Service land use category and is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Wellsona Road and Benton Road, approximately three miles north of the City of Paso Robles. The site is located in the Salinas River Sub Area in the North County Planning Area. . Also to be considered is the environmental determination. The Environmental Coordinator finds that the previously adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration is adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA because no substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revision of the previous Mitigated Negative Declaration, no substantial changes occur with respect to the circumstance under which the project is undertaken which will require major revision of the previous Mitigated Negative Declaration, and no new information of substantial importance has been identified which was not known at the time that the previous Negative Declaration was adopted.

A request by SLOCAL Roots Farms, LLC/Austen Connella for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00045) to establish 15,700 square feet of indoor cannabis cultivation and 6,690 square feet of outdoor cultivation on two parcels totaling 60 acres. Project development includes the construction of five new greenhouses totaling 15,700 square feet, a 1,000-square-foot building for processing, and a 200-square-foot cold storage area. A modification from the fencing standards set forth in Section 22.40.050.D.6 of the County’s Land Use Ordinance (LUO) is requested; a modification from the setback standards set forth in Section 22.40.050.D.3.b of the County’s LUO is requested to reduce the setback from 300 feet to 250 feet from the southern property line; and, a modification from the parking standards set forth in Section 22.18.050.C.1 of the County’s LUO is requested to reduce the required number of parking spaces onsite from 34 to 11. The project site is located at 7731 Suey Creek Road in the South County Inland Sub Area of the South 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 6, 2019 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Biological Resources and are included as conditions of approval.
