Biddeford should change zone for marijuana business

A second medical marijuana growing facility is seeking to locate in Biddeford, but will need a zoning change approval from the city council to move forward. We’re glad to see the council has given a first vote of approval to this request, and would encourage them to give final approval for the zoning change at their July 1 meeting.

The proposal from Kind Acres Farm would see a marijuana growing facility installed at 10 Arctic Circle, part of which is in a business zone, rather than one of the industrial zones where this type of use would be conditionally permitted. The property abuts an industrial zone, as well as the former Hostess bakery plant, Genest Concrete and other commercial uses. Only one residence is even nearby.
