STOREFRONT DISPENSARIES

The City Council adopted an ordinance on October 13, 2020 amending Title 5 to add 10 new storefront dispensary permits through a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process.  The 10 new permits will be exclusive to CORE eligible participants.   Read the RFQ procedures here for information on the process, criteria, etc.  Applications/statement of qualifications are not accepted at this time as the RFQ is still being developed.  Please stay tuned for details on how to submit a statement of qualification, important dates and other relevant information.
