A group of local businessmen plan to run a marijuana growing site in Chaves County, having received a special use permit from the Roswell-Chaves County Extraterritorial Zoning Commission Tuesday night.
The citizens' group voted 4-1 for the initial 10-year term for the permit during its meeting at the Chaves County Administrative Center after hearing from the applicants, the landowner and the business operators, called Osbourn and Amigos Farms LLC.
“I have one comment. It is way out in the middle of nowhere,” said Commission Chair Royce “Pancho” Maples about the plans for the property in Dexter. “That's probably a pretty good place to build it.”
