Article 7# Planning Board Bylaw as Written:
10,000 square feet initially allowed growing space shared and divided by the members of the cooperative. Each year, the coop can apply to add an additional 10,000 square feet of canopy until 50,000 square feet is reached.
In contrast, High Dune Cannabis Cooperative (HDCC) wants to boost that to 30,000 square feet initial.
Article 8# Planning Board Bylaw as Written:
50,000 square foot final canopy cap for the cooperative.
HDCC also wants canopy caps to be tied to the size of the parcel of land.
According to J. Drake Cook of HDCC, HDCCs vision is not the industrial style warehouse operations that the Planning Board expects. “We want to translate our collective 130 years of vegetable growing practices to an organic, hand-tended, soil grown, sun-grown product.”
