US (PA): MMJ campus proposed on 35 acres of Northampton County farmland

Lehigh Township officials are reviewing plans for a medical cannabis campus on 35 acres of farmland along Route 145. Though not yet licensed by the state, the facility is projected to create at least 80 high-paying grower/processor jobs in addition to three jobs at a dispensary on-site and another dozen or more at a drive-through restaurant also proposed as part of the project, a partner on the plan told.

The company behind the proposal is a Pennsylvania general partnership called LURRS, based at 499 Riverview Drive in the township. That’s also the address of Lehigh Engineering Associates Inc. The partner who provided details to a reporter on the project is Mark Leuthe, president of the engineering company.

A non-disclosure agreement prevents immediately identifying the operator of the campus or the restaurant, Leuthe said.

LURRS has owned the property where the campus is proposed since 2000, according to Northampton County property records. It’s located northwest of the intersection of Riverview Drive (Route 145) and Birch Drive, just south of Walnutport.
