US (NY): Cannabis cultivation, distribution plant proposed for Ulster County

Cresco Labs, “a vertically integrated cannabis and medical cannabis company” that is moving forward in the planning process to develop a “major cannabis cultivation, processing, packaging, and distribution facility” in the Village of Ellenville in Ulster County, officials announced.

According to Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan, the proposal would see Cresco Labs taking over a former manufacturing site that was once home to Channel Master and the Schrade knife company.

Ryan said that county officials and representatives from Cresco Labs have met with local and state officials as they begin to review designs for the proposed facility, which could produce upwards of 400 jobs in the region when it is complete.

Plans for the facility haven’t been finalized, but it is expected to include a facility that is at least 360,000-square-feet. The development would include a new building for cultivation, as well as spaces for processing, packaging, distribution, and offices.
