Canopy Growth Corp. presented the location of a cannabis retail store to the City Humboldt on Tuesday.
The presentation was made at the city council meeting on October 9th. The corporation suggested locating the store at the Humboldt Commons Shopping Centre which has recently undergone renovations.
A bylaw is in place for Humboldt on cannabis retail stores as they must be 150 meters away from any public school or any other cannabis shop. Also, the shop must maintain all required licenses and permits from approving authorities.
As a result, the city of Humboldt will hold a public hearing on November 13th so citizens can voice any concerns or questions about the location and regulations.
"When anything is under discretionary use it has to come to council to be approved for that particular application and if the application is denied they have the opportunity to reply," said Rob Muench, Humboldt's Mayor.
All assessed property owners within 75 meters of the subject property will be notified of the application at least seven days prior to the public hearing.
