MEDICAL MARIJUANA LOCAL PERMITTING UPDATE
In November of 2017, the City of Ypsilanti opted-in to the MMFLA, capping the number and type of facilities at 3 growing/processing facilities and seven provisioning centers. That is equal to the number and type of facilities that were licensed in the City at that time. These facilities were able to apply for City MMFLA permits beginning 1/3/18; all had applied by 2/1/18. All were awarded City permits as of 2/16. At this time, there are no more City MMFLA permits available.
The City understands the State may or may not license permittees, and as permittees need a State license to operate, the City understands that there may be openings in the future. Beginning March 1st, 2018, we will accept applications on a first-come, first-serve basis, to be timestamped and put into a queue. We will not review these applications until and unless a permit becomes available. All applications not reviewed will be discarded at the end of the calendar year. We will accept paper applications in person; all attachments must be submitted electronically via a USB drive or optical media with the paper application. For attachment G, we will accept an affidavit that if the permit is approved, the applicant will provide proof that all employees are over the age of 21 prior to operation. For attachments H and I, we will accept the applicant’s plan for storage facilities and security. For attachment J, we will accept an affidavit that if the permit is approved, the applicant will comply with the Statewide tracking system. For attachment L, we will accept a copy of the applicant’s submitted Step 1 application. For attachments M and N, we will accept the applicant’s plan for these facilities. No emails will be accepted. Prior to processing an application for a permit, we will contact the applicant to confirm ongoing interest and obtain the application fee.
If a line of applicants forms during the course of this process, applicants are required to leave a 5’ clear path of travel on the sidewalk and within the building, and to leave all doorways accessible to the public for entry and exit.
