Zoning change sought by pot-product manufacturer

FORT COLLINS – A businesswoman is asking the city of Fort Collins to change the zoning of a building on the west side of N. College Avenue in Fort Collins where she wants to establish a marijuana-product manufacturing plant.

Vanay Aquila of Boulder filed a conceptual review application with the city’s planning department earlier this week, requesting to change the use of the property at 1007 N. College Ave. from retail to manufacturing.

It is unclear what type of marijuana products would be manufactured there. Aquila did not return a phone call Friday requesting comment about her plans.

The 1,200-square-foot building constructed in 1959 as a discount store is north of the Poudre River between an Advanced Auto Parts store and Jalaisco’s Boutique.

A conceptual review application is the first step in the city’s planning process. The city’s planning staff then provides the applicant with a list of things that must be done before submitting formal plans.
