[ARCHIVED] Permit for Public Comment - Cloud Bud


Enclosures at the facility consist of 11 production units and 3 drying units, each controlled by a 1,680 scfm carbon absorption canister system.  Cloud Bud also has a greenhouse on site that is currently used for storage, but has the capability to process cannabis inside.  Each room in the greenhouse is equipped with a carbon absorption system in the event that processing of cannabis takes place.   No extraction operations are being proposed at this facility.  Pollutants subject to this modification are volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors.  VOC emissions were estimated to increase as much as 84 pounds per year. It is difficult to quantify odors; however the odorous compounds emitted by cannabis plants have low odor thresholds. With the odor control identified by Cloud Bud the Agency expects and requires that no odor can be smelled at the property line of the facility.


The Agency has completed a review of application No. 11237 and has made a preliminary determination that the proposal meets all the requirements of Regulations I, II and III and should be approved.  Review of the environmental impacts of cannabis processing and production was evaluated by King County Department of Permitting and Environmental Review (DPER) and concluded that a determination of non-significance with additional imposed conditions in the form of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) was sufficient to cover environmental impacts. 


The application and the information considered in making this preliminary determination are on file and available for inspection at the Agency’s office located at 1904 3rd Ave, Suite 105, Seattle, Washington, telephone (206) 689-4010.  The proposed Order No. 11237 is also available at the Agency’s website  Written comments with respect to proposed Order No. 11237 must be mailed to Ralph Munoz, Engineer, at Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, 1904 3rd Ave, Suite 105, Seattle, Washington 98101, faxed to Ralph Munoz at (206) 343-7522, or e-mailed to

Written comments will be accepted until the end of the 30-day public comment period per WAC 173-400-171.  All comments received during the comment period will become part of the public record.  The applicant, any interested governmental entity, any group, or any person may request a public hearing within the thirty-day public comment period.  A request must indicate the interest of the entity filing it and why a hearing is warranted.  The Agency may hold a public hearing if it determines that significant public interest exists.  Once the Agency has reviewed and responded to comments from the public, the draft Order will, if necessary, be revised, and then issued in final form.
