No. The Town will not be capping the number of cannabis retail stores in the area. Council feels that the Market will dictate the number of stores in the Town.
No. Like liquor stores in Town of Slave Lake, there will be no setback requirements between retailers.
Council is presently considering a 50m setback from all schools, future school sites, and provincial health care facilities.
Yes. You will need a Development permit, as well as any applicable federal and/or provincial approvals and licences.
The Town of Slave Lake will be accepting applications for cannabis retail stores on October 1st 2018.
Where an applicant provides all of the required information, a permit can be issued within a couple of weeks.
However, where a use is listed as discretionary, the process involves notification to adjacent landowners, which provides 21 days for a potential appeal. The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) must review these applications as well.
Once you have your provincial license, and after you have received the required permits from the Town of Slave Lake, you may begin construction on a retail space.
Please refer to the Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission for information regarding the provincial licensing process.
