Nevada City health club to be repurposed as 'cannabis campus'

It's been in the works for more than a year, but a proposed "cannabis campus" is taking shape now that the principals have closed escrow on the former South Yuba Club property in Nevada City.

The two buildings in the 500 block of Searls Avenue, which have been vacant since the health club facility closed in November 2017, will house up to six businesses and will join Elevation 2477', the county's first medical marijuana dispensary, to flesh out a "cutting-edge multi-tenant cannabis campus," said project manager Maria Herrera.

Nevada City council moves forward with adult-use cannabis ordinance

The only cannabis dispensary in Nevada County could be switching from medical-only to adult-use sales by the beginning of next year.

Months of emotional debate had marked Nevada City's decision last year to allow for the establishment, permitting and regulation of medical-only cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, distributing and testing laboratory businesses.

The city awarded its only dispensary permit to Elevation 2477' in February. But after the dispensary opened in August, its owners found they were turning away two-thirds of their potential customers because they did not have a medical marijuana recommendation. Dispensary co-owner Daniel Batchelor told the city council he estimated the city was losing $100,000 in tax revenue.
