Nelson Cannabis Collective Public Hearing this week

Nelson City Hall building

 Nelson Cannabis Collective has applied for rezoning to allow for an indoor Cannabis Cultivation Facility at 45-Government Road,  and their lengthy processed reached a milestone on Monday with a public hearing.

Project investor and Chief Cultural Officer Mitchell Scott says they had an open house and received a lot of feedback, some positive and some negative.

He says they're working hard to address those concerns to make sure the city and community feel confident that the business is not going to be disruptive.

Council later passed the application

A zoning amendment to allow cannabis micro-processing in Railtown was forwarded to a public hearing.
