Willow Cultivation's proposal was to build the facility on lands on the east side of Woodall Way between Devonshire Avenue and Dundas Street.

WOODSTOCK - A zone change application to build a medical marijuana processing plant was denied by Woodstock City council.

Willow Cultivation presented their motion to council during Thursday's meeting.

Mayor Trevor Birtch says while the company is a top provider of medical marijuana, residents raised their concerns on the area they applied to.

"The type of facility that we're presented with here, it has proper air handling and HVAC and security. So, in fact as the product is being grown there would be no disruption to the community and no smell."

Willow's proposal was to build the facility on lands on the east side of Woodall Way between Devonshire Avenue and Dundas Street.

Mayor Birtch adds although they turned down their application, there are other locations in the Friendly City were the facility could be placed.

He says the facility was a very small operation compared to the other applications council has approved. The plant would be growing the marijuana on site, processing it and shipping it out for patients' care.

"We thanked Willow for their interest and we encourage them to continue to work with the City as we find them another location."

He says they will be looking at other locations for the company over the coming days.
