LINCOLN - This month, Cresco Labs came
forward with a zoning request to the Regional Planning Commission,
the Logan County Zoning Board of Appeals and the Logan County Board.
Cresco Labs has requested that 13.3 acres of land next to the
tire shredding plant in Logan County be rezoned from Highway
Business to Agriculture.
Cresco Labs is currently applying for a medicinal cannabis license
with the state. The state government will be granting twenty-one of
these licenses later this year.
The Planning Commission and the ZBA both recommended that the land
be rezoned. The county board has the final say on the matter.
The issue was discussed at the board's workshop on Thursday. At the
Regular session on Tuesday evening, with no further discussion on
their part, the board unanimously approved to rezone the land.
However, the board members did not all agree to approve a letter of
support for Cresco Labs. Schumacher voted, no, on approving a letter
of support and on approving a Community Benefits Agreement for the
Board member present at the meeting were David Hepler, Rick
Aylesworth, Chuck Ruben, Gene Rohlfs, Robert Farmer, Jan
Schumacher, David Blankenship, Pat O’Neill, Andy Anderson, Andy
Meister, Emily Davenport and new board member Scott
