COUNTY OF LAKE NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

COUNTY OF LAKE NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

Project Title: Agriculture-Exempt & Temporary Cannabis Processing Structures

Ordinance
Project Location: Countywide
APN No.: Countywide
Project Description:
The Agriculture-Exempt & Temporary Cannabis Processing Structures Ordinance is an
amendment to the County Code that establishes regulations to permit the use of certain temporary
structures for the purposes of drying and processing commercial cannabis onsite at approved
outdoor, mixed-light, and indoor commercial cannabis operations, and allows agriculture-exempt
structures for the storage of supplies and equipment for cannabis cultivation. As discussed in
more detail in the Project Description, the proposed ordinance includes several limitations on the
size, scope, and duration of the agriculture-exempt structures and temporary processing
structures that can be permitted in the County, including allowable footprints of structures, and
building material specifications that cover temporary tent structures and temporary container
structures. The Project includes the following types of regulations on temporary drying structures
for commercial cannabis cultivation: 1) application requirements including submittal of site plans,
project descriptions, locations of proposed and existing structures and uses of structures, and
proposed dates of use; 2) setback requirements and height limitations; 3) allowable footprint size;
4) slope requirements; 5) electrical limitations and inspection requirements; 6) guidelines for the
use of generators; and 7) limitations on the duration of use. The Project establishes a process for
temporary drying structure building permit applications, renewal, suspension, and revocation; and
establishes development standards, performance standards, and temporary permit requirements,
as well as a process for building agricultural structures that are exempt from building permit
requirements.
