One application submitted for medical pot

By Press Release

The City of Delta has received one application for a medical marijuana center license. City clerk Jolene Nelson reports the application was submitted by John Thomas, doing business as Green Meadows Dispensary, LLC. He currently holds a medical marijuana center license in Montrose County.

Nelson said the retail location is to be determined, because the initial site was found to be within a 1,000-foot buffer around churches, schools and parks. Thomas is aware of that problem and will be amending the application.

Once the application has been amended and reviewed by the city clerk, a public hearing will be scheduled before the Delta Planning and Zoning Commission.

By city ordinance, medical marijuana centers are capped at two. Because just one application was received prior to the application deadline of April 16, the deadline has been extended until further notice. Delta voters also approved medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities. No applications have been submitted for those types of businesses.
