  3. There will be no use, or storage, of volatile solvents.
  4. Facility will NOT be open to the public.
  5. There will be no sales on site. Therefore, there will be no cash or product stored on site.

  7. Neighborhood security will insure elimination of ilegal dumping and vacant property vandalism.
  8. The project meets the zoning requirements set by the City of Sacramento for a marijuana cultivation site.
BUILDING
Building
  1. The building was vacant during the past four years. During this time, there was no onsite activity or ownership presence, which caused it to become a target of vandalism, dumping and homeless encampment.
  2. Currently, exterior improvements have begun, debris have been removed and dumping has decreased.
BENEFITS
  1. Our business presence in the neighborhood will increase security.
  2. An updated energy efficient plan for exterior lighting is a top priority.
  3. Property vandalism, dumping and homeless occupancy will be eliminated.
  4. City mandated Neighborhood Responsibility Plan will financially benefit the neighborhood. One percent of the renevue from the project goes back to the neighborhood via the Neighborhood Responsibility Plan administered by the City of Sacramento.
SECURITY

Our comprehensive security plan, which was prepared by a licensed security company as mandated by the City of Sacramento, will make the premises and neighborhood safer. The security plan includes updating and adding outdoor security lighting (LED), security camera installation, controlled access, employee identification badges, monotiring by a security alarm company that will include panic buttons. Staff scheduling will insure on site management 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
