At their Wednesday meeting, which begins at 4 p.m. in the community center, Carson City planning commissioners will have the chance to weigh in on a controversial marijuana dispensary – and potential restaurant – proposed for the south end of town.
The applicant, Las Vegas-based Qualcan, is requesting a special use permit for a 7,978-square-foot building to house a marijuana retail store and vacant space for a potential restaurant. The project is located at 5100 S. Carson St., on property zoned general commercial. A drive-through is proposed for the dispensary. Renderings from Vedelago Petsch Architects show the building with signs saying “Jade.”
“The contemporary aesthetic will provide a higher level of design appeal than most commercial retail projects and this aspect of the project should be taken under consideration when the project is being reviewed,” Todd Vedelago wrote in an application letter dated May 25.
The request comes on the heels of a new ordinance that was proposed by Qualcan and approved by the Board of Supervisors on Sept.
