6.1   Application No. 2019-00000064/ UP AMND (Winter Greens Adult-Use Cannabis Delivery Service Use Permit Amendment); Owner/ Applicant: Winter Greens, LLC. Jenna Gatto, Planning Manager.

The applicant is requesting a Use Permit Amendment to add medicinal use cannabis delivery to the existing adult use delivery service. Winter Greens cannabis delivery service is currently operated out of a 2,750 square foot suite located in the DM (Downtown Manufacturing) zone at 10960 West River Street.  No exterior modifications to the site or property are proposed. No public access is proposed and on-site sales are prohibited.  No other changes, other than the addition of medicinal use cannabis delivery, are proposed. 

Staff Recommendation: That the Planning Commission adopt Resolution 2019-18 determining the project to be exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) and approve the Use Permit Amendment for the project based on the recommended findings and subject to the recommended conditions of approval. 

6.2       Application No. 2018-00000162/TUP (Gray’s Crossing Events Temporary Use Permit); Owner/Applicant: Hayes Parzybok and Glen Clement, Tahoe Club Company, LLC (11410 Henness Road; APNs 043-010-008 and 043-010-003). Yumie Dahn, Associate Planner. 

In April, the applicant was approved for a Temporary Use Permit approval to hold 32 private events each year with amplified music at the PJ’s Restaurant and adjacent outdoor dining/lawn area at Gray’s Crossing from May to October in 2019 and 2020. The applicants recently received approval of a Special Exception from the Truckee Tahoe Airport Land Use Commission (TTALUC) to lift the occupancy requirement that is associated with the Truckee Tahoe Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan. In light of this, the applicants are requesting to remove Condition No. 20 from their Temporary Use Permit: 

A maximum of 173 people shall be allowed at the PJ’s restaurant, outdoor dining area, and adjacent lawn areas, including staff. If TTALUC approves additional people onsite beyond a 20% increase, the project shall return to Planning Commission for review and approval. Prior to June 1, 2019, the applicants shall provide a plan to the Planning Division identifying how attendance to the concert events would be monitored and capped. The plan shall be reviewed and approved by the Community Development Director. 

Staff Recommendation: That the Planning Commission adopt Resolution No. 2019-16 determining the project categorically exempt from CEQA per Section 15304(e) (Minor Alterations to Land) and approving the Amendment to the Temporary Use Permit based on the recommended findings and subject to the recommended conditions of approval.
