City of Ypsilanti

Posted on: January 2, 2019


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 7 provisioning centers. That is equal to the number and type of facilities that were licensed in the City at that time. All were awarded City permits for 2018; all renewing facilities have been awarded City permits for 2019. At this time; one grow/processing facility permit is available due to non-renewal. Note that new growing/processing facility locations require a Special Use permit via zoning to operate. That application, as well as the facility permit application, can be found here:

The City understands the State may or may not license City permittees, and the City understands that there may be available permits in the future. We will accept applications on a first-come, first-serve basis, to be timestamped and put into two queues; one for growing/processing and one for provisioning centers. We will not review these applications until and unless a permit is 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 (METRC). For attachment L, we require documentation of prequalification prior to processing the 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. No structures, including tents, may be erected on the sidewalk or in the street.
