Board of Health comes out against Fulcrum’s proposed pot grow field

GREAT BARRINGTON — Citing a lack of concrete evidence, members of the town’s Board of Health agreed to pass along a negative recommendation to the Selectboard regarding the proposed 80,000 square-foot marijuana cultivation development on Van Deusenville Road in Housatonic.

At the board’s last meeting on Thursday, Oct. 3, Michael Lanoue, chairperson of the board, opened the floor for comments from the public regarding Fulcrum Enterprises LLC’s proposal.

“I know this issue is all the talk in our town,” said Lanoue, reiterating that all comments should pertain to health-related matters.

Great Barrington resident Sharon Gregory kicked off the discussion by inquiring about the volume of water that Fulcrum’s plan states it would require to operate from the Housatonic location. Having a background in finance, she said, it is common to perform some kind of test or trial to see if something is plausible.
