 March 24, 2014 San Luis Obispo County Department of Planning and Building Courthouse Annex San Luis Obispo, CA 93408 Subject: Withdraw of Conditional Use Permit Application DRC2005-00211 Bunyon Brothers/Perozzi Green Waste Management Project In accordance with San Luis Obispo County Land Use Ordinance Chapter 22.64.030 (B), we are withdrawing our Green Waste Management application (DRC2005-00211) and request that all submitted project information and unused filing fees collected for this project be refunded. We initiated this application in December of 2005, believing that a green waste management operation on the Perozzi Ranch would provide a desirable facility to meet the community’s needs and help implement the County’s Integrated Waste Management Board objectives. Our concept was pretty basic: Composting. We would divert green waste material, the largest component of a community’s waste stream, from landfills and indiscriminate dumping and transform it into an organic, nutritious soil amendment product. Over the years this application has been in the planning process, we provided a number of studies and project analyses to support the project at this location, with a refined project description document submitted in May of 2013. This application package was prepared with input, guidance and directives from the staff of CalRecycle, Cal Poly’s College of Agriculture, CA Regional Water Quality Control Board, Air Pollution Control Board, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Cal Fire, and San Luis Obispo Planning, Public Works & Integrated Waste Management Departments, all supplemented with studies from our team of highly qualified and professional consultants. The result of this effort was a comprehensive project description and detailed plan package addressing all aspects of this project at this site. This included:
Physical Constraint Analysis (Biological Resources; Drainage, Flooding and Water Quality; Cultural Resources)
Capacity Constraint Analysis (Groundwater Resources; Traffic and Circulation, including trip generation, destination, turn lane warrant analysis, geometry, etc.)
Quality of Life Constraints (Aesthetic and Visual Resources; Noise; Fire Hazard; Odor Impact Minimization Plan, addressing composting operations, odor detection & mitigations, air quality, fugitive airborne transport, pathogen reduction methods, etc.) All of the CEQA mandates were addressed and mitigations provided with conditions and agency oversight to provide multiple levels and regulatory compliant redundancy of the project. We were confident that this project would be approved by the County (Planning Commission and, if appealed, Board of Supervisors), with the County approval and CEQA challenges dismissed through any litigation brought forth, which was publically threatened and highly advertised from some of those who have recently expressed opposition to the project. Let us be very clear in this matter. We never intended for this project to offend anyone or create such anger by some of those in the community. The hysteria and misinformation that has been disseminated about this project from a few of our neighbors was unbelievable, and we found remarkable that they did not fairly represent the project, its positive impacts and benefits. Even more disturbing are the comments and confrontations we have received from those who have approached and threatened our livelihoods and us personally. We encourage a spirited debate on the facts; however will not tolerate abuse and ignorance. In all honesty, it is not worth it for us to continually be faced with this level of negative attitude and adversity
