The cannabis cultivation facility would include five 2,000-sf hoop houses for the first two years of operation, and greenhouses of the same dimensions to replace the hoop houses for the third year and beyond, for a total of 10,000 sf of flowering canopy. Additionally, the project includes the construction of 6,120 sf of support area.
