REDDING, Calif. - The Redding planning commission approved the city's first indoor commercial cannabis grow site at its Tuesday, Sept. 11, night meeting.

The city approved the use permit for Pinnacle Cultivators, a commercial cannabis cultivator that will be located on Innsbruck Drive just off of Highway 44.

“And so when you go out there, you don't see a lot of retail traffic,” said Zach Bonnin, associate planner for the City of Redding. “So this is an industrial building that this proposed use will be going into.”

Bonnin says Pinnacle was one of two cultivators vying for a use permit.

The other was Aleck Commercial, which was denied because of its close proximity to the Good News Rescue Mission.

“Innsbruck is a quiet, dead end, industrial-type street,” Bonnin said. “The other one on South 273 is more of a commercial zone with a lot more activity and a lot more visibility.”

Bonnin says the location will be fenced off and gated and the only people allowed in or out will be employees.

“So there's no public component where someone could go in and buy a retail portion of cannabis of some sort,” he said.

Bonnin says this process is new for everyone involved.

With this being the first business of its kind opening in Redding, there will likely be some challenges and learning curves.

But for now, they're working with state regulators and local code enforcement officers to make sure growers have all their ducks in a row before opening for business.

“I'm not sure how long it's going to take for them to get through the building permit process and the licensing process,” Bonnin said. “So it could actually be some time before we actually see them open up.”

The planning commission is expected to hear the appeal for the site next to the good news rescue mission on October 2.
