Las Vegas, Oct. 30, 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 Las Vegas City Council. On October 29, 2014, the City Council voted to approve both the MediFarm SUP and the Compliance Permit. If MediFarm receives a State provisional registration certificate for a Medical Marijuana Dispensary at this location on November 3, 2014, then MediFarm will proceed with the last step for full licensure, a final review for a privileged business license in the City of Las Vegas. If succesful the company will begin construction at their Western Ave location and will open under the name Blum LV.
MediFarm, LLC, a subsidiary of Terra Tech Corp., originally submitted its applications to the City of Las Vegas on July 23, 2014, to obtain a Special Use Permit (SUP) and Compliance Permit for a Medical Marijuana Dispensary to be located at 1921 Western Avenue in Las Vegas, Nevada. Issuance of the SUP demonstrates compliance with land use requirements and issuance of the Compliance Permit is required prior to the City issuing a business license. The Downtown Design Review Committee approved the building elevations and signage for MediFarm's dispensary at this location on August 26, 2014 and the City Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of the SUP on September 30, 2014. The City of Las Vegas Planning Department recommended approval of MediFarm's Compliance Permit with approval of the SUP.
We have made great progress in the city of Las Vegas; our team has navigated a very difficult and complex application process. To receive a unanimous vote of approval was a great attestation of the quality of our work", said Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech. "We are anxiously awaiting the state rankings due out on November 3rd."
