Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has submitted a Conditional Use Permit application to allow a medical cannabis dispensary at 2640 Mount Rushmore Road. There is currently a 6,364 square foot convenience store and pharmacy located on the property. There is also a car wash under construction on the property located directly north of the dispensary. The applicant is proposing to utilize the existing pharmacy floor area (2,320 square feet) for the medical cannabis dispensary. The balance of the structure will continue to be used for the gas sales and retail use. The subject property is zoned General Commercial District but is located directly adjacent to an apartment development on the east and approximately 400 feet from a church. 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 residential use and church and ensure that the use at this location does not create a saturation of similar uses within this area of our community.
