Fulcrum withdraws its cannabis cultivation and manufacturing site proposal

GREAT BARRINGTON — After several months of continued public hearings and meetings that included disapproving outcries from neighbors, a cannabis cultivation and manufacturing business has withdrawn its application to set up shop in Housatonic — for now.
Fulcrum Enterprises LLC’s legal representation, attorney Kathleen McCormick of Great Barrington-based McCormick, Murtagh & Marcus, submitted a request to the Selectboard to ask it to consider allowing the entity to withdraw its application without prejudice.
At the Tuesday, Jan. 14 Selectboard meeting, McCormick stated that the peer review had not been completed. The town had received a report back from Odor Science & Engineering Inc., which is headquartered in Bloomfield, Connecticut, at the end of December, the report from the town-hired sound expert — Cambridge-based acoustical consultant Ascentech — was not available until Friday, Jan. 10.
“Though this report recommended ways to tweak or condition the project, the applicant didn’t have time to address the findings,” she said to a packed cafeteria at Monument Valley Middle School. Initially, the meeting had been scheduled to take place there to accommodate a presentation by the town-hired sound and odor experts.
McCormick also noted that the applicants had already asked for delays throughout the process, and by asking to withdraw the application for special permit without prejudice, it would allow the Fulcrum team time to coordinate meetings and make changes without working under constraints of the continuation guidelines established by the state’s Cannabis Control Commission.
“It’s no one’s fault,” she said.
