PEACOCK TWP. — Voters in Peacock Township approved a zoning referendum proposal to rezone property for a medical marijuana grow facility from C1/R1 (commercial/residence districts) to an (AG) agriculture district.

The property is located at 764 and 772 N. M-37 in section 35.

Voters approved the zoning referendum with 108 to 101 votes.

Because the referendum was voted in, the medical marijuana grower can utilize the whole five-acre parcel instead of just the 250 front-feet, where it is commercially zoned.

“The business owner will be able to use the entire parcel of land as they see fit,” said Peacock Township Supervisor Mark Venema, adding now the business owner will work through the application process with the township.
