City of North Vancouver is accepting applications for a recreational cannabis retail store in Central Lonsdale.
Submissions will be accepted from June 9 at 9 am to June 10 at 9 am.
The applications will be reviewed on a “first come, first served” basis with all those received in the first hour being placed in a lottery that will determine the list of those who may submit their rezoning application.
For example, the first one selected in the lottery pick will be asked to submit a formal rezoning application, along with the required $4,026.25 application fee.
The remaining selections in the lottery will be placed on a waiting list should the previous application not be successful in getting the property rezoned.
All complete submissions received after the first hour will be listed on a “first come, first served” basis after the last selection of those who were in the lottery.
Should the City receive only one complete submission during the first hour, that will be the selected applicant to make a rezoning application with those following listed using the same “first come, first served” system.
However, if the lottery is required, it will be held open to only those who submitted a complete proposal during the first hour of the submission window.
These persons will be contacted to arrange a convenient time to gather at City Hall to witness the lottery draw.
The draw will determine the order of these first-hour submissions that will be reviewed subject to the first and subsequent applications being rejected. Provincial COVID-19 protocols in effect on the day will be enforced, and the draw may be required to be held outdoors.
