If the property is any less than one-third of an acre, then the resident can only grow three plants outdoors. There cannot be any commercial growth within town boundaries or residential zones, as defined in the county's general plan. The smallest outdoor or mixed light commercial grow operation must be 1 acre or larger and allows for a maximum of 25 plants, not to exceed 2,500 square feet in canopy size. Indoor cultivation does not have an acreage limit, as long as it is in a fully enclosed building. There are different permits for different sized buildings, and different sized parcels of land. In total, there are 22 permits for commercial cannabis activity. All outdoor and mixed grows must have a 7-foot fence that prevents the cannabis from being viewed and a locked gate. All lights must be shielded and downcast from view. All permit applicants must undergo an annual on-site compliance inspection by the county. Cultivation sites must be at least 1,200 feet from schools and all pesticides, fertilizers and irrigation plans must be preapproved by the county. There is also regulation on non-cultivation permits such as dispensaries, nurseries and microbusinesses. If the owner or operator of the cannabis operation does not stay in compliance with the permitting process, then their operation can be abated. The Plumas County Planning Commission will review the ordinances in their next meetings. In the meantime, the county has restricted all commercial and medicinal cannabis growth through the recently passed moratorium on cannabis growth, which was approved Nov. 27. pic I al oca I span :i ing ng Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer Members of the Plumas County Behavioral Health Department went on a tour throughout the county discussing Mental Health Services Act spending for the year. In a dinner and open forum setting, community members were able to hear updates on the spending plan in Quincy on Dec. 6. It was a full house at the Quincy Library as MHSA Coordinator Aimee Heaney spoke on the annual spending plan update and some background on the MHSA. The MHSA was passed in 2004 and funding to the counties began in 2007. The purpose of the act is to ensure that all California counties can provide direct services to serve under-served youth and adults living with mental illness. The county receives over $2.5 million a year in MHSA funds which is distributed into four components including community services and supports, and prevention and early intervention. A large portion of the funds goes toward partnerships with hospitals, schools and youth programs. The purpose of the annual update was to inform the public of the progress on spending the funds in the previous fiscal year and to seek public input on ways Behavioral Health could better utilize MHSA funds and better serve the community. "Behavioral health can't be the one and only service provided in the count ," said Heaney. "We have been trying to find partners that will help distribute the services." The Quincy meeting was just one of many stakeholder meetings that Behavioral Health held last week throughout the county. Input from these meetings will help the department in constructing its annual spending plan and three-year plan. in re than 12 of Christ + +++++ Plus all of our housemade artisan baked goods and confections.
