In the 2015 legislative session, the State Legislature adopted legislation to combine the medical marijuana and recreational marijuana laws as it relates to retail establishments. As a result of this change, the State Liquor and Cannabis Board is proposing new regulations for retail marijuana stores and marijuana cooperatives, including the number of retail establishments that will be allowed in each city or county. Under the previous rule, Everett would be allowed to have a maximum of five stores. Under the new regulations, Everett would be allowed to have up to ten stores.
Planning Commission scheduled a public hearing on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at their regular meeting beginning at 6:30 pm, in the William E. Moore Historic City Hall council chambers, 3002 Wetmore Avenue. The purpose of the public hearing is to make a recommendation to City Council on the existing City ordinance limiting the number of allowed retail marijuana stores in Everett to not more than five. The maximum that would be allowed in Everett by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board would be ten.
The public is welcome to attend and provide comments for consideration by the Planning Commission. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the Planning Department at 425-257-8731 or at email@example.com.
