Feb. 23 Clearlake Planning Commission hearing on cannabis operation expansion


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Clearlake will hold a public hearing at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Planning Commission on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, at 6 p.m. or soon thereafter in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 14050 Olympic Drive, Clearlake, CA., to consider the following:

• UP 06- 20 Cannabis Cultivation, 07-20 Manufacturing, 08-20 Distribution, 09-20 Nursery, and 10-20 Retail delivery

Chandra Martinez, representative of Fuego Tribe, is looking to expand their existing cannabis operation (use permit UP 16-18 for cultivation) at their commercial rental property in “Olympic Plaza” located at 14935 Olympic Drive.

The applicant is requesting to modify their use permit to include manufacturing, distribution, nursery and a retail delivery operation, all categorically exempt from environmental review under CEQA Section 15301 “existing facilities.”

The City recently removed the limit on the amount of cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, testing laboratory, nursery, processing, and delivery-only dispensary permits within the existing commercial cannabis combining district, for which both properties are zoned. No new structures have been proposed and the remodel of the existing structures has been included for review.

City ordinance requires a development agreement and use permit approval, aside from other standard business license requirements. For additional information please visit www.clearlake.ca.us.
