Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has submitted a Conditional Use Permit application to allow a medical cannabis dispensary at 1401 West Omaha Street Unit #100. There is currently a 10,950 square foot commercial building located on the property. The applicant has indicated that the medical cannabis dispensary, to be known as Puffy’s, will occupy 626 square feet of the building and will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The applicant has submitted one additional Conditional Use Permit application to allow medical cannabis dispensaries located on the same property in another unit. The subject property is zoned General Commercial District but is located across from 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.
