The public has until April 11 to review the project’s California Environmental Quality Act draft mitigated negative declaration and to submit comments to the El Dorado County Planning and Building Department. Comments can be made to county planner Aaron Mount through his email at or at 2850 Fairlane Court in Placerville. 

Lee, an El Dorado Hills resident, has applied for outdoor cannabis cultivation for the first two years then would transition to greenhouse mixed-light cultivation of the same square footage from the third year onward.
