Port Coquitlam set to approve zoning for cannabis company if final conditions are met

City of Port Coquitlam wants assurances that off-site works are being done but says Lucava Farms has met the other conditions required for zoning
Port Coquitlam seeks final details before approving zoning for Lucava Farms.

A would-be cannabis products producer has another hurdle to jump before receiving final approval from the city of Port Coquitlam.

This week, city council deferred adoption of a rezoning for Lucava Farms to establish a licensed medical marijuana and edibles facility at 1840 Broadway St.

It’s been a long road for Lucava Farms as a number of conditions were required during third reading for the project on July 23, 2019.

Since then, Lucava has met a number of those requirements, including registration of a legal agreement to ensure installation of equipment to eliminate odour.

Lucava has also received a 10-year air quality permit from Metro Vancouver.

But one remaining item remained on Lucava’s to-do-list: the city wants assurances for some of the off site works, such as directional signage and barriers to restrict traffic movements.

A spokesperson for the city said Lucava’s rezoning adoption will be reviewed at the next PoCo council meeting next Tuesday (July 27).

Lucava also requires licensing from Health Canada to operate.
