Neighbours of a proposed Glen Valley-area marijuana growing facility are worried about local impacts, even as the owner pledges odour and light won’t be issues.
Glen Valley Cannabis is one of the many new marijuana-industry operations looking to start up in the Fraser Valley. The company is currently applying for a permit to build a soil-floored greenhouse in Glen Valley, near the Blaauw Eco Forest.
A number of neighbours nearby are worried about light pollution, odours, and the amount of water used by the new facility, or the impact it might have on the water table.
The residents asked that their names not be used, but they have banded together as the Glen Valley Neighbourhood Coalition.
