For Frontier Enterprises, a Muted Entry into Medical Marijuana in Adelanto

According to the Victorville Daily Press, February 6, 2017, the massive medical marijuana park that broke ground is backed by Frontier Enterprises, a major home builder in Southern California. Frontier eyed its newest venture in Adelanto, seized upon it and then ceremoniously ushered in the start of construction of 21 buildings across 630,000 square feet. Naseem Farooqi, vice president of governmental and public affairs for Industrial Integrity Solutions (IIS), the nascent company later acknowledged to be under the Frontier umbrella, lauded the “huge efficiency” in the process. The development promises 550 permanent jobs, hundreds of temporary jobs during the building phase, $100,000 to nonprofits serving the city and an estimated $2 million yearly in tax revenue to Adelanto’s general fund. IIS registered with the California Secretary of State on Nov. 7, 2016. Nine days later, the Frontier Enterprises subsidiary purchased two parcels of land to construct its project, according to San Bernardino County land records. Cumulatively, those parcels had been valued at $1.1 million, but the soaring land prices credited to this industry – described as $500,000 to $1.5 million an acre by city officials and Realtors – guarantees that the 31 acres are now worth much more.
