City of Coachella Ratifies Approval of Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for High Hampton’s CoachellaGro Operation to Cultivate Medicinal Cannabis
High Hampton Holdings Corp (CSE:HC) (“High Hampton” or the “Company”) today announced that the City of Coachella’s Planning Commission has ratified through resolution the amended conditions and parking variance requested by High Hampton. When the approval was given on May 2, 2018(as press released May 3, 2018), it officially granted the Company’s 10.8 acre CoachellaGro property a conditional use permit for the cultivation of medicinal cannabis. In addition to the resolution, the 30 day appeal period, in which anyone from the public could challenge the project, has now expired.
The CoachellaGro asset is strategically located in a medicinal cannabis business zone 45 kms east of Palm Springs, 72 kms east of Riverside and 210 kms east of Los Angeles. High Hampton originally purchased the property in 2017 and applied for a conditional use permit (CUP) with the objective to operate a 194,000 sq.ft greenhouse facility for the purpose of medicinal cannabis farming. With all necessary approvals in place, the Company has retained Vertical Construction Co. out of Irvine, CA, a full-service builder specializing in ground-up construction for office, retail, biomedical and pharmaceutical environments. GMP Certified, Vertical Construction is capable of working under strict regulatory guidelines and conditions, an ideal match for the specific construction needs of CoachellaGro.
David E. Argudo, CEO of High Hampton, commented:
“On behalf of our entire team, I would like to thank the City of Coachella, Council, and the Planning Commission for their support. Now with the adoption of the resolution, variance and the 30 day appeal process behind us we can start the construction documentation process. We have retained Vertical Construction Co. to assist us in the design build and provide input on the design process, early value engineering and all the required coordination and consulting involved in the construction.
With a conditional use permit for CoachellaGro in hand, we have created instant added value for this asset which will remain the cornerstone of our business model and be complemented by the aggressive acquisition process we have begun this spring as we consolidate the California cannabis market.”
