Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO | OTCQB: SILFF | FSE: 3K7A), Oregon’s only publicly traded psychedelics company, announces that the Jackson County Planning Commission has proposed to amend the Jackson County Development Ordinance “to add Psilocybin Time, Place, and Manner Restrictions” (TPM) in the event that the BM 109 opt-out vote is unsuccessful next week.
The proposed text of JCLDO 3.14.4 states that “all Psilocybin Service Centers are limited to General Commercial zoning districts.” The full text can be found here. “A quick review of the Jackson County zoning map shows that the only unincorporated properties that would be available for psilocybin service centers are within the urban growth boundary abutting city limits or near I-5,” stated Silo Wellness CEO Mike Arnold, an Oregon trial lawyer. “Jackson County is effectively attempting to outlaw psychedelic nature retreats without a public vote.”
Silo Wellness recently announced a letter of intent regarding a potential joint venture with 960-acre New Frontier Ranch, which could potentially be the largest psilocybin retreat center, allowing for psilocybin nature tourism in the Cascade Mountains southeast of Medford. This agreement is contingent upon the lack of a county prohibition. The New Frontier property is like virtually all other rural Jackson County properties in that it does not have General Commercial zoning. However, it does have certain grandfather rights permitting some commercial uses pursuant to prior court judgments, allowing pursuit of remedies from the county directly or from the courts through litigation. “If Jackson County adopts these TPM restrictions, we will attempt to negotiate with the county this commercial use or potentially litigate if it’s deemed necessary and cost-effective,” Arnold said. Nonetheless, the Company continues to visit and review other potential properties around the state as it awaits final adoption of local rules. The public hearing is set for tomorrow.
