The last proposed site sits on Woodward Avenue, which received little to no backlash from residents.

While the commission voted to approve the proposals five-to-one, residents in attendance had split opinions.

During the meeting that lasted over five hours, the commission appeared impressed with Gatsby Cannabis’ petition, including its plans to give back to the community on an annual basis.
