We only asked the mayor’s office on late Friday pm for their relevant zoning rules and regs and received an answer first thing Monday ( see right hand column LATEST UPDATES) and now we learn from Massachusetts Live that GTI Massachusetts have filed a dispensary application with the city
The second floor of a factory building at 28 Appleton St. would house the city’s first medical marijuana dispensary under a proposal the City Council will receive Tuesday from a company opening such a facility in Amherst.
The council meeting is at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
GTI Massachusetts NP Corp. has filed the application for a special permit to open a medical pot facility that would occupy the second floor of a building in a general industry zoning district. C&D Electronics fills the first floor, said Marcos A. Marrero, director of the city Department of Planning and Economic Development.
GTI Massachusetts also had proposed a medical pot facility in Springfield and is connected with such companies in Maryland and Illinois.
The City Council invariably ships special permit requests to the Ordinance Committee for debate and a recommendation vote at a later meeting.
The medical marijuana facility would be the city’s first, though proposals have surfaced over the past few years
