Continued hearing to consider a request by CB Farms for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2017-00123) to establish outdoor and indoor cannabis cultivations, outdoor and indoor commercial cannabis nurseries, cannabis manufacturing, non-storefront dispensary, ancillary processing and transport activities. The project includes construction of a 37,350-square-foot greenhouse, and 8,000-square-foot metal building. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 10-acres of a 25-acre parcel. A modification from the setback standards is requested to reduce the required setback to the eastern property line from 300 feet to 100 feet. A modification from the parking standards is also requested to reduce the required number of parking spaces onsite from 67 to 36. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 4225 South El Pomar Road, approximately 4 miles northeast of the community of Atascadero. The site is in the El Pomar-Estrella Area 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 August 16, 2019, for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, and Hazards and Hazardous Materials are included as conditions of approval.
Continued from October 10, 2019.
