The beginning of February saw an exciting moment for any Coachella residents looking forward to an economic boost. Groundbreaking took place on 8th February 2019 on the Coachella Cann Park development, a brand new cannabis manufacturing, distribution and cultivation facility which is set to bring the area hundreds of new jobs. The project will take place over three phases and is predicted to give the city an impressive economic boom while taking advantage of the recent surge of interest in both medicinal and recreational cannabis use.
Great News For The Local Cannabis Industry
The ultimate goal for this exciting new cannabis project is to create a raft of new jobs for local residents, however the 3-story facility, which is planned to extend over 4-5 buildings, will also provide a range of programs and services for people living in Coachella and its immediate surrounding area. It covers an impressive 40 acres on an old junkyard site at the north east corner of Avenue 48 and Harrison Street. The facility is bringing to an end, the old auto-wrecking industry associated with the city, and is instead ushering in a brand new era of a thriving cannabis industry which is sweeping California and the nation as a whole. The city’s mayor has already expressed his enthusiasm for the project, believing that the new development is an excellent sign which indicates that the city is taking a new direction. Specifically, a direction that embraces a new, positive way of life, one that utilizes the new-found demand for marijuana products to the city’s advantage.
500 Brand New Cannabis Roles For Coachella’s Prospective Employees
The Coachella Cann Park development will create around 250 local jobs during the construction phase of the facility alone. However, once the buildings are complete and work has begun on the cultivation, manufacturing and distribution elements of the business, it is expected that the project will create as many as 500 permanent positions for the city’s residents. For local people who have been keen to get themselves on the cannabis industry career ladder, this facility will represent the best possible opportunity. Jobs will be available in all aspects of the cannabis sector and skilled personnel will be necessary to operate the growing side of the operation as well as the manufacturing and distribution arms.
A Powerful Cannabis Zone
Coachella’s mayor has expressed his delight at the way in which the city has embraced the new use of the old junkyard site to turn the city into the USA’s biggest cannabis driven zone. He pointed out that the project would bring a huge amount of tax revenue to the Coachella Valley as well as plenty of lucrative employment opportunities, which will allow the city’s citizens to buy homes in the area. The mayor also said that the city would be focusing on ensuring that the project would have access to every possible utility, in order to be as successful as possible. Construction on the Coachella Cann Park is expected to be completed by early 2020.
