Site plan approval for three new industrial buildings and an accessory retail store has been given the nod at committee level for Muskoka Grown, a Bracebridge based cannabis company.
The Province is allowing municipalities to opt in or out of retail cannabis stores, but councillors approved the plan for now before they make a decision on retail cannabis in the new year.
A Town report on the local opt-in/out ramifications is expected to arrive in January.
Mayor Smith says he’s happy to see Muskoka Grown’s level of investment in Bracebridge “continuing unabated” and reminded councillors that the cannabis sector is one of Bracebridge’s growth industries.
If Council opts out in the new year, cannabis wouldn’t be allowed for retail sale in Bracebridge. The company’s site plan approval still needs to be ratified by Council next week.
