Montgomery Village Council to Consider Cannabis Dispensary License Application – Shaw Local

MONTGOMERY – A former bank just east of Orchard Road in Montgomery could become Kendall County’s first cannabis dispensary.

World of Weed, LLC is seeking approval from the Montgomery Village Board for a Special Use Permit to open the dispensary in the former BMO Harris Bank at 1970 Caterpillar Drive.

Council is due to consider the permit application at its next meeting at 7 p.m., Monday, April 11, at Village Hall, 200 North River Street.

The village planning and zoning commission held a public hearing on the permit application on April 7, then voted 6-0 to approve an advisory recommendation in support of the application. The village community development staff also approved the permit application.

In their permit application, the developers noted that the approximately 4,400 square foot bank building is “well suited for dispensary use as it already has security infrastructure already in place.”

The app continues: “The entry/exit point for guests will be through a secure entrance on the south side of the building. Customers will wait in a waiting area until they enter a separate, secure sales floor from the back of the house, where there is a safe, product storage area and bathroom. rest for employees. No cannabis products will be visible from outside the building.

The proposed hours of operation for the dispensary would be 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

No on-site consumption of cannabis products or complementary products such as food and drink will be permitted.

The developers do not plan to make significant changes outside of the old bank.

The app adds: ‘The bulk of the changes will be made inside the building. Additionally, while the drive-thru lanes will remain, the plaintiff does not intend to use them because state law does not permit the sale of cannabis while driving.

The dispensary would be the first of its kind to be set up in Kendall County. Currently, the closest dispensaries are located in Aurora, Naperville, and North Aurora.
