Redding, which has seen two commercial cannabis cultivation businesses open so far this year, could get a third cannabis manufacturing company.

The Muse Cannabis Manufacturing, Distribution and Warehousing Project has applied to construct two commercial buildings on a now-vacant, 11.2-acre property located at 3610–3680 Technology Way.

The application from company representative Ryan Muse will be the subject of a public hearing before the Redding Planning Commission next Tuesday. The public hearing begins at 4 p.m. in the Redding City Council Chambers, 777 Cypress Ave.

Company representative Muse has requested approval to construct two buildings to house commercial cannabis operations that include a 100,000-square-foot growing facility.

The proposal also calls for a 43,132-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility on the land, which is zoned for commercial use.

The company estimates the business will employ between 40 to 50 full-time workers.

Bookmarks plans to reopen Tuesday after the business sustained water damage on Friday | Commerce

Employees at Bookmarks in downtown Winston-Salem plan to reopen the bookstore Tuesday, Sept. 8 after water damage Friday night forced them to close the business over the weekend.

Bookmarks posted information about the water damage, its temporary closing and its plan to reopen Tuesday on its website and on its Facebook page.

Bookmarks is a literary arts nonprofit organization and independent bookstore.

The staff discovered water flowing into the bookstore about 8:30 p.m. Friday, said Jamie Rogers Southern, Booksmarks’ operations director.

Its security camera footage showed two men turned on its garden hose, drank from it, washed their faces and hands and then dropped the hose by the back without turning the water off, Southern said in an email.

“It is hard to tell from the footage if this was maliciously done rather than simple negligence,” Southern said.

Winston-Salem police were called to the scene Friday night.
