Board of zoning appeals will hear request for hemp processing

Conditional use permit meeting is Jan. 21

Ada's board of zoning appeals will hear a request for a conditional use permit for two purposes at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 21, according to Michael Harnishfeger, village zoning inspector. The meeting is in the Ada depot.

The request includes: 
• Indoor/outdoor cultivation and harvesting of industrial hemp.
• Industrial hemp processing.

Construction plans include a 35-by-96-foot greenhouse. It is to be used for indoor cultivation and outdoor cultivation of up to one-half acre and construction of a 1,600-square-foot  processing facility.

The request involves a proposed project in the Grass Run Industrial Park. 

Two 1992 Ada High School classmates, Troy Erickson and Billy Watterson, using the name Ada Boyz Holdings, LLC, intend to develop a distillery with a bar and restaurant and a greenhouse for growing hemp on a site in the Ada industrial park, bordering North Avenue.
