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.
