Public Information Meeting

When: June 14 - 06:30pm

Where: Council Chamber, Municipal Hall - 37955 Second Avenue

What's Proposed: Reconsideration of a Temporary Use Permit for a cannabis dispensary.

The District of Squamish received a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) application for a Cannabis Dispensary,TUP No. 50, which was originally issued in July 2016. Due to errors in the original notification process, the District is reprocessing the TUP application. The original TUP has been rescinded and is now being reconsidered.

The property is zoned I-1 (Light Industrial). The proposed Cannabis Dispensary is considered a Retail Sales use, which is not permitted as a primary use in the I-1 Zone. If approved, the TUP would allow the use for a period of up to 3 years (from the date of the original TUP issuance in July 2016).
