Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has submitted a Conditional Use Permit application to allow a medical cannabis dispensary at 2120 West Main Street Unit #4. There are currently two 6,050 square foot buildings with nine separate units located on the property. The applicant has indicated that the medical cannabis dispensary, to be known as Puffy’s, will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. within unit #4. The applicant has submitted three additional Conditional Use Permit applications to allow medical cannabis dispensaries in three additional units located on the same property. The subject property is zoned General Commercial District but is located adjacent to a City greenway, which is also a public park. As such, the applicant has submitted this Conditional Use Permit application for the review and approval by the Planning Commission. In reviewing this location, the Planning Commission must determine if the proposed use is adequately buffered from the greenway and ensure that the use at this location does not create a saturation of similar uses within this area of our community.
