TORONTO, April 10, 2019 /CNW/ - High Hampton Holdings Corp. (CSE: HC) (FSE: 0HCN) ("High Hampton" or the "Company"), a cannabis brand and distribution company in the U.S. market, is pleased to announce that the City Council of West Sacramento unanimously approved the adoption of a Development Agreement (DA) between the City of West Sacramento and High Hampton's wholly owned distribution arm Bravo Distro for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). The approval permits Bravo and High Hampton to operate a wholesale cannabis distribution facility in the City's M-1 zone.
"The adoption of this Development Agreement signals that the city approves High Hampton's plan to build and operate a large scale distribution hub", commented High Hampton CEO Gary Latham. "In the parlance of California's cannabis regulatory framework, this is a huge step forward. The state relies heavily on the judgement of local government as a first step in determining the suitability of a location and an operator for a licensed cannabis business. As a result, the process for obtaining agreements such as this Development Agreement with the City of West Sacramento is quite involved and demands review and approval of facility, operations, and security plans to name a few. Quite correctly, the city wants to get it right before they allow a business to move forward with cannabis operations, and we are pleased to have successfully completed this process."
High Hampton plans to begin construction on its West Sacramento facility upon a City Plan Check which is expected to be scheduled in the coming weeks. With the facility buildout underway shortly, the Company plans to add the West Sacramento facility to its growing network of operational hubs by the end of Q4 of this year. At about 15,000 sq ft, the Sacramento facility is ideally suited for distribution and will become a crucial hub in serving Northern California, while the Company's Cudahy facility in Los Angeles County will serve the Southern California market.
