Projections Already High, Adelanto Increases Commercial Cannabis Footprint

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, July 17, 2017, Adelanto city officials embraced a more-is more approach and greatly expanded the commercial cannabis industry’s potential footprint here. The City Council approved a re-zoning resolution permitting commercial marijuana activities on nearly 2,000 acres in Adelanto’s west side and on another 300 acres in the more central part of the city. Mayor Rich Kerr said that there were 12 to 15 entrepreneurs ready and interested in developing on the land. Roughly 1,995 acres of land bounded by Air Expressway to the north, Holly Road to the south, Koala Road to the east and areas west of Caughlin Road to the west, were re-zoned from “Desert Living” and “Open Space” to “Manufacturing Industrial” with a marijuana overlay zone, according to a city staff report. The overlay zone permits cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, transportation and testing. The marijuana overlay zone was also extended to 65 acres of land bounded by Rancho Road to the north, the Southern California Edison power lines to the south, Aster Road to the east and Muskrat Avenue to the west; and 235.5 acres bounded by Yucca Road to the north, Rancho Road to the south, Aster and Verbena roads to the east and Raccoon Road to the west, according to the staff report. It marks the first major expansion since December 2016 when the city opened up existing zones by 160 acres.
