The owner of a medical marijuana grow operation in Hamilton’s East End is not going to fight the city over zoning.
The operation at the old Boomer’s Bar on Kennilworth Avenue is in an area zoned for commercial operations and not industrial.
The owner of the property has told the tenants to solve the bylaw issue with the city or move.
Maple Leaf Wellness has three federal licences to grow medical marijuana and owns the building, but its tenants are actually are growing the plants.
Area councillor Sam Merulla says he’s willing to work with the operation to identify some possible new locations in industrial areas of the city approved for medical grow ops.
