Las Vegas, Oct. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC), is pleased to announce that they have received a unanimous vote for approval of their Western Avenue dispensary location by the City of Las Vegas Planning Commission. Appearing before the commission was the last step in the process before the city council votes on whether to approve both the special use permit for land use and compliance permit for business licensing. With unanimous approval of both the design review committee and planning commission, MediFarm is now seeking final approval by the city council on October 29th. All permits to operate are pending final state approval.
"We are extremely proud of the work our design and planning team has submitted. Nevada has been a very challenging and competitive environment, one that helped us refine our application process significantly. We feel this was a great learning process before entering the New York and Florida markets," explains Terra Tech CEO Derek Peterson.
The proposed facility is approximately one mile off of the strip on Western Avenue near Wyoming Avenue. The potential dispensary is also located in close proximity to complimentary medical facilities with easy access to residential communities. The team has completed and submitted their state application associated with this property and the company expects to obtain the results of the application process from state officials sometime in early November. MediFarm has eight pending applications statewide. Terra Tech intends to give further updates about their efforts throughout Nevada as they progress through the application processes and reach certain milestones.
