Grow-op building permit extended by one year

A legal cannabis grow-op has an extra year to get up and running.

A building permit was issued to Cannadabis Medical on Feb. 14, 2018, to build a 5,650 square foot facility located at 1720 3rd Avenue.

Because a grow-op is a discretionary use under the city’s zoning bylaw – something done so that council could add extra requirements they feel is necessary – the facility has to be finished within 12 months.

“There's a provision in there that you can extend that out to two years,” said Rob Muench, Humboldt’s mayor.

In a letter to council, Cannadabis CEO Alexander Calkins said his company is undergoing negotiations with another company that would boost the financial resources it has available and that an extension would allow them to finish those discussions.

Council voted to give that extension.

The mayor said if they don’t have anything built by then, they’ll have to have a completely new permit approved by council.

“It would be in their interest, I think, to try and get something going this year,” he said.

The facility will be used to produce cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol cannabis flowers for wholesale distribution.

“I’m hoping that things are going to work out, that they can get some shovels in the ground in the next year.” Muench said.
