The project is located approximately 2.5 miles south of Benton and west of United States Route 6. The proposed General Plan Amendment would re-designate the land use of the project parcels as Agriculture, which would permit new uses and activities on Apogee Farms proposes to construct and operate a commercial cannabis facility on the northern project parcel. A General Plan Amendment is required to revise the land use designation of the project site to a use that allows commercial cannabis activities.
