On Tuesday The City Council Directed Staff To Amend The Cannabis Land Use Ordinance To Allow A Restricted Dispensary To Operate In The Business Park, He Said.

The former Eel River Sawmill site will be tentatively renamed Humboldt-Rio Dell Business Park. It will be the proposed home of cannabis-related businesses that offer nearly everything except a dispensary of flowers and edibles. In a letter to the City Council, Glenn White wrote that he would like to open a business that sells infused products. Our plans include the construction of three buildings, White wrote. The northernmost building will include a health and fitness spa and a wellness center. We hope to be able to administer and sell holistic health and beauty care products consisting of CBD/THC-infused oils, gel tablets, topical lotions, make-ups, cremes, sublinguals, etc., he continued. All products consisting of CBD/THC-infused oils and concentrates will be marketed and packaged for medical use only. There will be no sales of open cannabis flowers or edibles. On Tuesday the city council directed staff to amend the cannabis land use ordinance to allow a restricted dispensary to operate in the business park, he said. Under current laws no dispensaries are allowed in Rio Dell Marijuana Stocks city limits. Mayor Frank Wilson said the council, city planning commission and developers all want the business park to be attractive, and that design requirements include landscaping. Its not going to be a bunch of plastic buildings and hoop houses, he said. Rio Dell-Scotia Chamber of Commerce Board President Nick Angeloff said keeping the cannabis businesses across the river and separate from the city is a good idea. It the end, I think the way (the city council has) arranged it in the city will work well, he said.
