Templeton proposal dies for marijuana dispensary

A potential showdown between Templeton residents and the owner of a proposed medical marijuana dispensary was averted Thursday, when the applicant withdrew his application.
Dylan Hyde, owner of the North County Resource Center, was scheduled to appear before the county Planning Commission on May 25 to try and convince the board to allow his cannabis co-op in a commercial services zone on Ramada Road.
His business, said Templeton Area Advisory Group Chairman Rob Rosales, had already ignited the furor of many residents who had planned to appear before the board to fight the application.
The application came less than two months after another proposed dispensary prompted the Atascadero City Council to craft an ordinance governing the business, which has since moved to Morro Bay.
The county, which has jurisdiction over unincorporated Templeton, is in the midst of creating its own guidelines.
