GE cannabis projects on SVCAC agenda
The Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC) meets next on July 22, and will review two use permit applications for cannabis cultivation projects in Glen Ellen.
The SVCAC meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.
On the agenda is a request for a permit to operate a 19,000-square-foot commercial cannabis cultivation site at 4800 Cavedale Road in Glen Ellen.
Lunar Ridge Farms LLC is proposing an outdoor grow site, with no trimming or drying at the location. There is also a 19-acre vineyard on the site. No new structures are part of the proposal.
Also on the SVCAC's agenda is another outdoor cultivation project, this one at 2211 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen. The applicant, Glentucky Family Farm LLC, is proposing a 1,560-square-foot grow, with up to 50 plants. There would also be indoor cannabis cultivation of 500 square feet in an existing barn, and on-site processing.
In addition to the cannabis projects, the SVCAC will also review a request to convert a residence at 17430 Arnold Dr. into a bed and breakfast with three available bedrooms. The proposal includes two 3,000-square-foot hoop houses that will be used to grow vegetables. The entire parcel size is 14 acres.
Filling out the agenda is a request for design review of a new parking lot adjacent to industrial warehouses at 1994 Fremont Dr. in Sonoma.
The SVCAC is an appointed panel that reviews development proposals in Sonoma Valley and then makes recommendations to the appropriate government body in charge of making the ultimate final decision.
