“A proposed medical marijuana cultivation site in Littleton received support from the Board of Selectmen, enabling the applicant to continue in the state’s approval process.
Selectmen unanimously voted to approve one host community agreement with Boston-based Sanctuary Medicinals Inc. for its proposed cultivation site at 234 Taylor St.
“These folks came to us with their best foot forward and wanted to be a part of the community,” Selectman Chuck DeCoste said.
Sanctuary Medicinals was one of two applicants before selectmen at their Oct. 17 meeting seeking a letter of non-opposition or support. Boston-based Mission Massachusetts also had a proposal and host community agreement for a cultivation site at 245 Foster St before the board, but was ultimately not approved because of concerns including security.
Selectmen’s letter of non-opposition for Sanctuary doesn’t approve the Taylor Street facility, but only allows the applicant to continue in the state’s process for Registered Marijuana Dispensary (RMD) licenses from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which requires the letter.
“Without that expression of support or non-opposition, then a particular site cannot proceed in the state licensing process,” Town Administrator Keith Bergman said.
