Pot producers to be allowed near youth equestrian activities

Over the course of two years, two marijuana producers have been fighting to be able to establish their businesses in rural Deschutes County. The County Commissioners voted last month not to not appeal a recent decision from the Oregon Court of Appeals to affirm a Land Use Board of Appeals ruling last month that said Deschutes County could not block marijuana production near “youth activity centers”. The ruling deemed that the county’s use of the term was too ambiguous.

Multiple applications were denied by the county commission for various reasons, with two applications being initially denied because the commission said they were too close to what the county deemed “youth activity centers.” Another application was rejected for being near facilities that host “youth oriented equestrian activates” as well as “4-H agricultural activities,” as stated in court documents. One other application was denied because the county commission said it was too close to Sundance Meadows Ranch, a privately owned and operated recreational activity and lodging business.
