Scottsdale commission OKs Airpark marijuana growing center

By J. Graber | Scottsdale Progress

Scottsdale’s only marijuana cultivation site could soon more than triple in size.

The Scottsdale Planning Commission voted 6-1 Wednesday to recommend the City Council approve a conditional use permit application to allow cultivation of marijuana plants for the Patient Alternative Relief Center at 7640 E. Gelding Drive.

If council approves the recommendation, the facility in the Scottsdale Airpark will grow from 15,000 square feet to 46,550 square feet.

The conditional use permit would also be good for a possible second floor addition to the existing facility at 7655 E. Evans Drive for an office.

Planning Commissioner Barney Gonzales cast the lone vote against the recommendation. He took issue with the second story office.

“I’m normally not too concerned about the use of the property but I have a problem putting in a conditional use permit on a yet-to-be-done remodeling of the second floor. I would support this permit if we could pull out the second story permit for now.”
