30 – Marijuana grow facility (2021)
(This is a part of a series of gleanings from the history of CRC’s 30 years of work; additional posts available here.)
In February 2021, CRC led community opposition to a proposed 20,000-square-foot facility on Foothills Road for cultivating, packaging and dispensing marijuana. We helped Arizona Sky Village hire an attorney to fight the facility whose lighting would have badly impacted the region’s dark skies.
The Cochise County Planning and Zoning Commission responded to the outcry by denying the permit to build, by a 5-to-2 vote. You can read the points raised by CRC at this link.
