Where are we in the cannabis business permits process?


Currently, we are in Phase II of the application evaluation process which means the City’s cannabis consultant is conducting their evaluations on the 25 applications (24 retail; 1 distribution).  It is anticipated that Phase III evaluations by the City Staff Selection Committee will not take place until early 2022.


Staff has posted a tentative timeline to the City’s Cannabis Information webpage.  Click on the box titled, “Timeline – Appl Period 1 Evals” to display the timeline below it.  Please take special note that the timeframes are approximate and are subject to substantial changes depending on the filing of appeals after each phase.
