Sand City Vibrancy Plan

EMC Planning Group is preparing a Vibrancy Plan for the City of Sand City. The plan focuses on the City’s West End and South of Tioga districts, two areas characterized by warehouses and industrial uses, but targeted in the General Plan for retail and mixed use. The plan will create on outline for a more pedestrian friendly environment and propose streetscape, economic, marketing, and zoning approaches to attracting restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and special events. The plan will embrace and build upon an existing artist community within the area.

Canibus Cultivation and Manufacturing
Approved in City of Greenfield

EMC Planning Group was hired by Greenfield Organix and Higher Level of Care to prepare a subdivision plan and application package for a conditional use permit and regulatory permit for a 4.85 acre parcel. Located in the light industrial zoning district, across from the city hall and the police station of Greenfield, the proposed project is expected to house ten 10,800 square foot greenhouses and a 4,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The manufacturing building was architecturally designed by PQ Design Studio, Inc. in San Diego and will complement the architecture throughout the City of Greenfield. Included in the application was an administrative initial study, consistency analysis, site and landscape planting plan and additional documentation for the regulatory permitting aspect of the application package. This was one of two medical marijuana cultivation and manufacturing projects approved by the Greenfield City Council on June 14, 2016.
