Project Description:  2015-011 Administrative Use Permit – Calaveras Healthy Impact Product Solutions (CHIPS) Woody Biomass-Fired Combined Heat and Power Project

The proposed project is a community-scale 3 megawatt (MW) biomass combined heat and power facility. The facility is designed to create electricity, heat, and biochar through gasification of woody biomass feedstock primarily collected from forest-sourced biomass. Biomass feedstock will be converted to a conditioned (cleaned) producer gas (gas) in the gasifier, and the gas is used in an internal combustion engine to run a generator to make electricity. The electricity is intended to be sold to Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) on their distribution-level circuit. Major pieces of equipment to support this operation are expected to be: a feedstock drying system, gasifiers and their respective gas conditioning  systems,  internal  combustion  engine  generator  sets,  a  standby flare device, biochar storage, dry biomass storage, a truck scale, a fork lift, and a front  loader. 

Project Location: At the eastern edge of the Calaveras County Water District West Point facility.  Site access is from an unnamed road off of North Railroad Flat Road, just west of Blizzard Mine Road, Wilseyville.  APN 12-011-014, T06N, R13E, Sec. 14.

Notice of Availability of a

Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) and

Notice of Public Meeting to Provide Comments on the Draft EIR

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) (SCH # 2016042019) for the proposed Medical Cannabis Cultivation and Commerce Ordinance is now available for review.  Public comment on this document is invited for a 45-day period from May 1 through June 14, 2017.  More information is provided below.

 

PROJECT LOCATION:  Calaveras County is located in California’s central Sierra Nevada region, ranging from low-elevation oak-covered foothills to high-elevation pine forests. The majority of land within the County falls within the regulatory jurisdiction of the County, with the exception of the City of Angels Camp, the only incorporated city within the county boundaries, and federal and state lands (approximate 13 percent of the land area of the County). Approximately 39,000 acres within the County are managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management with an additional 6,000 acres, associated with the Calaveras Big Trees State Park, owned by the State of California.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:   The proposed project is an ordinance addressing regulations concerning the cultivation, manufacture, testing, distribution, transportation, and storage of medical marijuana within Calaveras County.  An alternative that is being considered as a part of this EIR is to adopt a ban of cannabis cultivation and other associated commercial activities Regulations include permitting requirements to reduce conditions that create public nuisances by enacting restrictions on the location, type, and size of marijuana cultivation sites; the location, type, and size of commercial activities involving medical marijuana; and the use of screening, security, and other protective measures to more effectively control the adverse environmental impacts associated with medical marijuana cultivation and commercial activities.  The ban alternative would prohibit cannabis cultivation in all zones and limit recreational/medical cultivation to six plants grown indoors.

 

SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS: The DEIR identifies significant impacts in the following California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) environmental issue areas: aesthetics and visual resources; air quality; biological resources; cultural resources; greenhouse gas emissions; hydrology and water quality; transportation and circulation; and cumulative effects. As described in the DEIR many of these impacts can be fully mitigated but some cannot and would remain significant and unavoidable. Unavoidable impacts include effects on air quality (3.2-4), biological resources (3.3-3), transportation and circulation (3.9-2), and cumulative impacts to agriculture, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and circulation.

 

ADDRESS WHERE COPY OF DRAFT EIR IS AVAILABLE: The DEIR and proposed ordinance are now available for public review and download on the Calaveras County website at http://planning.calaverasgov.us/MedicalCannabis.aspx.  Printed copies of the document are available for public review at the following locations during normal business hours:

Commenters wishing to appeal the decision to prepare an MND must specifically state this intention in their letter.

 

Project Location:  The Project is located along Singletree Drive near the intersection of Conestoga Trail, approximately 0.5 mile north of State Route 4 and approximately 2.5 miles west of the community of Copperopolis in western Calaveras County.

 

Project Description:  Calaveras County Public Works Department, in conjunction with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), intends to replace an existing, failed, low water crossing with a new bridge on Singletree Drive over Little Johns Creek (an alternative spelling is Littlejohns Creek).  The low water crossing (LWC) once allowed the creek to flow through several culverts under the road.  The LWC failed and washed out during high flows in the winter of 2004.  The road was washed out and remains closed.  Construction of the new bridge is planned to commence in 2018 or later.

Calaveras County Board of Supervisors

Summary Public Notice

The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors introduced an ordinance amending and replacing current Code Chapter 8.06.  The purpose and intent of this chapter is to protect the health, safety, and quality of life of the residents of Calaveras County via the prevention and timely eradication of public nuisances.  This helps to ensure that all premises are maintained in a manner that protects the public health and safety while complying with all applicable laws.

 

Chapter 8.06 of the County Code, Public Abatement – Property Maintenance, is being revised and modernized to reflect and comply with current local, state, and case law.  This proposed ordinance supersedes and replaces the current 8.06 in order to clarify and improve upon the enforcement activities of the Building Official and Code Compliance Unit.  It makes explicit the existing authority of the Building Official and Code Compliance Unit to enforce violations of County and applicable state codes and contains language and processes more easily understood by residents. It also sets up a more streamlined alternative enforcement scheme and appeal schedule for Code violations relating to cannabis cultivation, due to the unique challenges and impacts presented by unlawful cannabis cultivation. It establishes an Office of the County Hearing Officer to hear cannabis cultivation-related appeals, which will more effectively control the adverse impacts associated with unlawful cultivation by allowing swift enforcement action to take place.  In total, the revised chapter 8.06 represents a move toward more effective enforcement of the County Code and applicable state codes.

The Board is scheduled to adopt this ordinance at the regularly-scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting on February 28, 2017.

Public Notice

California Building Standards Code

 (Summary)

The California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) is authorized by the California Building Standards Law (Health & Safety Code 18901 et seq.) to administer the processes related to the adoption, approval, publication and implementation of California Building Codes which are codified in Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR), also referred to as the California Building Standards Code.  The State of California uses a three year adoption cycle to update Title 24.  On July 1, 2016, the CBSC adopted the 2016 California Building Standards Code.  As provided in Health and Safety Code 18938.5 the 2016 California Building Standards Code becomes effective statewide on January 1, 2017 and will be applicable to all jurisdictions in the state even if not formally adopted.

The California Building Standards Code is a compilation of three types of building criteria from three  different origins: (1) building standards that have been adopted by state agencies without change from building standards contained in national model codes; (2) building standards that have been adopted and adapted from the national model code standards to meet California conditions: and (3) building standards, authorized by the California legislature, that constitute extensive additions not covered by the model codes, that have been adopted to address concerns that may be specific to California. 

The California Building Standards Code, Title 24, is the established minimum regulation for the design and construction of buildings and structures in California.  State law mandates that local government enforce these regulations.  The Board of Supervisors may make local amendments to the technical provisions of any of the codes.  However, such amendments would require the Board to make findings based upon local climatic, geologic, or topographic conditions.  State law prohibits jurisdictions from adopting amendments that would reduce a requirement but allows amendments that are more stringent.  Staff is not recommending any local technical amendments to the California codes.

A full copy of the California Building Standards Code can be located online at www.bsc.ca.gov/codes.aspx


The Board is scheduled to adopt this ordinance at the regularly-scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting on February 28, 2017.

NOTICE OF INTENT

TO ADOPT MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION


In compliance with Section 15072 of the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines, notification is hereby given to responsible agencies, trustee agencies, interest groups and the general public that Calaveras County proposes to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Hogan Dam Road over Bear Creek Low Water Crossing Conversion (New Bridge) Project.

The Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) and supporting attachments are available for review by the general public at the offices of the Calaveras County Department of Public Works, 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249 and on the web at:

          San Andreas, CA 95249

          Attn: Evan Weston, Calaveras County - Project Manager


Commenters wishing to appeal the decision to prepare an MND must specifically state this intention in their letter.

Project Location:

The Project is located along Hogan Dam Road, approximately 1.5 miles southeast of its intersection with Gann Road, 3.3 miles north of Hunt Road, and approximately 3.7 air miles southeast of the community of Rancho Calaveras in western Calaveras County, California.

Project Description:

Calaveras County Public Works Department, in conjunction with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), intends to replace an existing low water crossing with a bridge on Hogan Dam Road at Bear Creek. Hogan Dam Road can become impassable due to seasonal high flows in Bear Creek resulting in a 20+ mile detour. The new bridge will provide an all-weather crossing of the creek and will accommodate the traveled way, shoulders, and barriers.  Construction of the proposed bridge is planned to commence in spring 2018 or later.  Project duration is expected to be one season, but could extend to two seasons due to regulatory limitations on work periods.
