Dispensary 33 Gets OK For Zoning Change That Would Enable Expansion
from Ald. Martin's latest newsletter:
"5001-09 N. CLARK - APPROVED. Alderman Martin is approving the rezoning of the property from C1-2 to C2-2 to allow Dispensary 33 to expand into the next storefront to the north.
The zoning change is necessary pursuant to the city’s Cannabis Ordinance, which requires C2 zoning for recreational dispensaries, whereas Dispensary 33 opened as a medical dispensary and was grandfathered in as a recreational dispensary with the existing zoning at the start of the year.
This zoning change will not lead to any change in the footprint of the building itself.
Indoors, the business will increase their square footage from 2,100 sf to 3,400 sf, allowing them to expand their in-coming waiting room and add an outgoing waiting room as well.
This proposal received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the community, as well as support from the local block clubs and chamber of commerce.
Alderman Martin’s office continues to explore solutions to traffic safety concerns at this intersection, in partnership with local groups and the Department of Transportation."
