Planning Commission 51/2020
HEARINGS: (Advertised for 9:00 a.m.)
Hearing to consider a request by Sam Balakian and AT&T Mobility for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2018-00176) to allow for the construction and operation of a wireless communications facility consisting of eight (8) panel antennas, thirty-six (36) remote radio units, six (6) surge suppression units, two (2) dish antennas, and associated equipment and hardware, all within a new 80-foot tall faux monopine tree to be located within a 24-foot 8-inch by 24-foot 8-inch lease area, surrounded by an 8-foot tall wooden fence enclosure. The enclosed lease area also includes a 90-square-foot concrete pad with equipment shelter, A.C. unit and a backup emergency generator. The project will result in the disturbance of 5,316-square-feet (0.12-acres) of a 37.73-acre parcel. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 1010 Truesdale Road, approximately 0.7 miles south west of the community of Shandon. The site is in the Shandon-Carrizo 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 July 24, 2020 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics and Biological Resources, and are included as conditions of approval.

Planning Commission 50/2020
Hearing to consider a request by Bradford Peters and John Freeman for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00237) to establish approximately 1,680 square feet of indoor cannabis canopy within an existing 1,872-square-foot greenhouse on an approximately 12.11-acre parcel. Ancillary activities to support the indoor cultivation include cannabis processing (drying only) within the existing greenhouse. An existing 160-square-foot storage container will be used for tool and equipment storage. The applicant previously cultivated cannabis within the existing greenhouse under cultivation registration number CCM2016-00338. A modification from the location standard set forth in the Inland Land Use Ordinance 22.40.050.D.1 is requested to reduce the location standard from a sensitive receptor (Los Ranchos elementary) from 1,000 feet to 860 feet. The project site is located at 5450 Edna Road approximately 1 mile southeast of the city of San Luis Obispo. The project site is located within the San Luis Obispo Sub Area North of the San Luis Obispo Planning Area. Also to be considered is the environmental determination that the project is categorically exempt under CEQA, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Class 1). A Notice of Exemption has been prepared pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15062.
