Talk on Forest Grove pot operation set March 16

A major potential indoor marijuana grow operation in the former Matsushita building on Heather Street in Forest Grove will be the topic of discussion at a neighborhood meeting Wednesday, March 16, at 6 p.m.The meeting will be held in the Echo Shaw Elementary School cafeteria, 914 S. Linden St. in Cornelius. Community members are invited to discuss the proposed re-development of the former Matsushita manufacturing facility, 4114 Heather St., as a licensed indoor marijuana production facility prior to site development review by the city of Forest Grove.

The meeting is intended to allow parents of students attending Fern Hill Elementary, Echo Shaw Elementary and Neil Armstrong Middle School — as well as surrounding property owners — a chance to gain a better understanding of the proposed use and for the developer to solicit feedback from the community, according to a notice from Community Development Director Jon Holan.
