Community Meetings – Proposed Cannabis Dispensaries – May 10 & May 23 – In Person

RNRA Co-hosts River North
Cannabis Community Meetings
To operate an Adult Use Cannabis Dispensary, an Application for Special Use must be filed with the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). The ZBA will hold a hearing to consider the Special Use application, notice of which will be provided at a later date.
In advance of this hearing, applicants for Adult Use Cannabis Dispensaries are required to hold a Community Meeting to explain their proposal and gather community feedback. The following community meetings have been scheduled. Each meeting is co-hosted by the River North Residents Association and the proposed dispensary operator.
No RSVP is necessary for in-person meetings
