Wolter said he doesnt want the odor of marijuana, which can be especially pungent near harvest, to permeate neighborhoods. Under proposed guidelines that will be discussed by the City Council Tuesday night and brought back for approval at a later date, nurseries and commercial outdoor cultivation would be restricted primarily to industrial zones. The only exception would be on rural-residential parcels of two acres or more where cottage farmers could grow up to 25 plants and wholesale operations could cultivate an area of no colorado pot business more than 5,000 square feet. Regardless of parcel size, indoor or greenhouse operations also would be allowed in rural-residential zones, which tend to be located at the edge of town. Most of the marijuana businesses would be concentrated in the citys industrial zones, other than up to two dispensaries that could be allowed in the downtown commercial area under the draft ordinance. Typical businesses relegated to industrial areas include cannabis edibles, oils, tinctures, distribution, and testing. But with limited industrial lands available in Cloverdale, the potential for the cannabis sector to grow may be limited. How much demand there will be from the marijuana industry to be in Cloverdale, and how much revenue it would produce remains an open question. Cloverdale voters in November overwhelming agreed to tax marijuana businesses up to 10 percent of their gross revenues on top of the other taxes that state will collect. In ballot arguments, advocates estimated $90,000 in tax revenue would be collected for each cannabis business.
