According to a report by the Government Ethics Commission, Mark Owenby and Michelle Page purchased the property in December 2016. The couple began developing a medical marijuana growing operation, including constructing a large greenhouse.
A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.


Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.


He also alleged that Lindsey’s actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.

Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.
