Public hearings on marijuana businesses

By Judy Reed

Public hearings are scheduled at next week’s Cedar Springs Planning Commission meeting on January 12 at 7 p.m. for two more marijuana businesses that want to locate in Cedar Springs.

Kzoo Retailers, LLC doing business as Kkind, is applying for a Recreational (Adult-Use) Marihuana Retail Store at 206 and 218 N. Main Street, where Preferred Landscaping was located. 

The second business, Healing Organic Garden, LLC D/B/A White Pine Provisionary, is applying for a Recreational (Adult-Use) Marihuana Retail Store and a Recreational (Adult-Use) Marihuana Class C Grower business at 4116 17 Mile Rd., Cedar Springs. That is the strip mall where Subway, Little Caesar’s, and other businesses are located. Their plan is to let the businesses in the first three suites stay, and they would use the back four suites. This means any businesses located in those last four suites will need to find a new location.

The meeting will be held online through ZOOM. If you’d like to view the meeting or participate during the public hearing or public comment time, you can get the ZOOM ID and password by visiting https://cityofcedarsprings.org/2020/12/17/01-12-2020-planning-commission-zoom-meeting/.

This makes six marijuana-related businesses that have applied to set up business in Cedar Springs. So far, Lume Cannabis, which bought the building previously occupied by Vitales Pizza, is the only one with final approval, according to Cedar Springs City Manager Mike Womack. The Post contacted the business for an update, but no update has been forthcoming.

Womack said that Agri-med, which is going into the fireworks store on White Creek Avenue, received preliminary approval a few months ago, but they still haven’t submitted materials for their final site plan approval. 

3Fifteen, who wanted to build a new building between Tractor Supply and Dollar General, received preliminary approval but then reportedly had a falling out with the property owner and they are not proceeding forward at this point.

Womack said that Michiganja, applying to go into the building that formerly housed Cedar Café, is on the waiting list to be reviewed by the Planning Commission, and likely to be reviewed starting in March.
