Westside Visionaries, LLC is proposing to open a new Adult Use Cannabis Dispensary at 1233 S. Wabash Ave. in the 3rd Ward (at the site of the old Wabash Tap building). As is required by the Municipal Code of Chicago, the operators are hosting a community meeting to introduce the proposal to the neighborhood. The meeting details are as follows:
Where: Hilton Garden Inn (123 E. Cermak Rd.)
When: Thursday, September 29th at 6:00 pm
Alderman Dowell would like to stress that the decision to allow an Adult Use Cannabis Dispensary to open in the City of Chicago is made by the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), not the local alderman. With that being the case, it’s important to register your opinions on this proposed business with the ZBA either during the meeting when the permit application is being heard, or in advance of the meeting in writing. Contact information, meeting schedules and the video feed for ZBA meetings can be found here.
Please also attend the community meeting to learn more about the proposal and to register your opinion with the proposed operator. Alderman Dowell will be gathering resident feedback during the community meeting as well.
