Commissioners prep for land use meeting


January 24, 2019

Metal fence posts stand sentinel to mark the future fence line of a proposed marijuana growing and processing operation.

At the Whitman County planning commission's hearing on Wednesday, Jan. 16, it was decided that the request for rezoning for a marijuana operation would be sent on to the county commissioners.

Selway Holdings, LLC applied to have their three-acre site on Country Club Road southwest of Pullman rezoned from an agricultural zone to a light industrial zone.

Since growing marijuana is prohibited in light industrial zones, Selway will have to seek a variance to grow on the property if it is converted to light industrial.
