Craft Cannabis Company Pulls South Side Business Proposal


Plans to start up a craft cannabis growing operation on Peoria's south side are now shelved. 

The Peoria City Council was set to vote on The Grow Trust's application to grow marijuana at 4040 SW Adams on Tuesday. But the Peoria Community Development Department said they've withdrawn their application.

The Planning and Zoning Commission approved their application earlier this month, but nearby residents said they were concerned about the facility and taken off-guard because the owners hadn't reached out to them first.

The Grow Trust could file to open at that location or a different spot. Co-owner Joshua Blue didn't immediately return phone or e-mail requests for comment.
