Mayor Sarno Announces First Round Recreational Marijuana Selections

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stated, “First of all, many thanks to our whole Internal Review Committee, especially to Assistant City Solicitor and City Council Attorney Tasheena Davis, independent expert consultant Atty. Julie Steiner, Chief of Staff Tom Ashe and City Councilor Tracye Whitfield for their many hours of complete and thorough work. Based on the Review Committee’s recommendation, which considered criteria regarding traffic congestion, public safety, financial wherewithal, non-adverse effects to our neighborhoods/business district areas, proper land use issues, geographical issues and our sensitivity to diversity aspects, I have selected the following four entities to move forward in this first round:

  • INSA – 122 West Columbus Avenue
  • Holistic Industries – 1300 Boston Road
  • 6 Bricks LLC – 250 Albany Street
  • 311 Page Boulevard LLC – 311 Page Boulevard

“I will now start negotiations with each of these entities on a Host Community Agreement to then be sent to our City Council for their review and approval. If and when approved, it will then go to the State Cannabis Commission for even more vetting, especially on finances for their approval or disapproval.”
