Some people in Templeton are upset with county leaders for approving a permit to allow a cannabis cultivation business to set up shop in their small town.

Tuesday morning, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors will hear an appeal to a permit that establishes both indoor and outdoor marijuana cultivation on a 77-acre plot of land along York Mountain Road, approximately seven miles west of downtown Templeton.

Supervisors approved the permit in Sept. 2018.

Nearby residents told KSBY last fall they were blindsided by the county’s decision to approve the permit and immediately decided to file an appeal.

Most people said they are not against cannabis farms, but they don’t think it’s a good fit for their backyards.

The board will take up the issue at its meeting Tuesday. It starts at 9 a.m. in the County Government building in downtown San Luis Obispo.
