CANNAGROW HOLDINGS (OTCMKTS:CGRW) recently announced submission of the Land Use Application for its Colorado project. The company seeks approval from the Planning Commission and then by the County Commissioners for this Application. Once approved, CANNAGROW will begin the build out in five phases, encompassing 30,000 sq. ft. of growing area. The build out will include 16 Hoop-houses, a Head-house and state-of-the art greenhouse facility.
The Colorado project will also require infrastructure improvements like a commercial well, water lines, sewer system, lighting, storage tanks, security fencing and roadways. CannaGrow is working as the Representative for NuGro Industries to bring the project from the planning to a working state-of-the-art Growing Facility. The completion of this project will allow the company to begin revenue streaming from licensed Growers.
Delmar Janovec, CEO of CANNAGROW HOLDINGS (OTCMKTS:CGRW), said that the landowner and developer of these facilities, NuGro Industries submitted the Land Use Application to the Huerfano County Planning Department. The application will go to the Huerfano County Planning Commission on January 7, 2015. The Commission will then review the Application and other prerequisites for the project such as Site Plans, Phasing Plans and various exhibits.
