Palmer Closer To Med Marijuana Project

A new medical marijuana cultivation  facility is coming to Palmer.  

The city's planning  board unanimously approved special permits by Colorado-based  Altitude Organic Corporation to build a plant on Chamber Road.  

A  company executive hopes to break ground in October and have the site  operational in early 2018.  

The workforce could see 80 new jobs added by  2020.
