To open 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 public hearing to consider the Special Use Application, official notice of which will be provided at a later date. In advance of the ZBA Hearing, all applicants for Adult Use Cannabis Dispensaries are required to hold a “Community Meeting” for the purpose of soliciting feedback.

Alderman Reilly does not control the outcome of this public process. The Alderman may offer his opinion on the proposed Special Use to the Zoning Board of Appeals. He also encourages local residents to share their feedback and positions with the ZBA via written testimony.
