HARTFORD — The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission has approved plans to convert a former Hartford Courant distribution warehouse into a cannabis cultivation business.
The plans were submitted by River Growers CT. The business would take over the old distribution warehouse at 121 Wawarme Ave. According to a presentation made to the commission, River Growers will use the site for “cultivation and manufacturing,” but not retail. The company also submitted plans for security and odor control in the area. Plans call for 75 percent of employees to be local residents.
