US (CA): Processing license in Nevada County

The Processor license provides cannabis farms a pathway to cure, dry and package their finished product at an off-site location. Currently, many farmers are limited by commercial building requirements which can be financially burdensome. The passing of this ordinance is a huge step towards a sustainable and cooperative cannabis future in Nevada County. 

Specifically, the ordinance adopted updates current local policy to include the below definitions: 

“Processing – any method used to prepare cannabis for commercial sale, including but not limited to: drying, cleaning, curing, grading, trimming, and packaging of cannabis and non manufactured cannabis products.”

“Off Site Processing: The processing of permitted and licensed cannabis product grown offsite may occur at a local and State licensed and permitted cultivation premises subject to all limitations and requirements contained within the provisions of this Section, including but not limited to: noise standards, odor controls, sanitation requirements, accessory structure requirements, support area size limitations, setbacks, and parcel sizes, etc.

What are the local requirements with this new policy? 
Offsite processing facilities shall meet commercial occupancy requirements and be specifically described in commercial cannabis cultivation permit applications including the number of employees and the areas for off-site processing shall be delineated on the site plan.
Traffic associated with offsite processing activities shall be limited to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. No more than 6 vehicle trips (round trips) shall be allowed for off-site processing activities per day.
