STEP 1: SCREENING APPLICATIONS: 

To be considered to operate a cannabis-related business in the City of Stanton, interested operators will submit screening applications. Applications were accepted between September 14 and October 29, 2020. The Screening application submittal period is closed and all applications are under review (see Step 2).   

STEP 2: SCREENING EVALUATION:

Each screening application will be reviewed and scored by the Application Evaluation Committee, using Cannabis Business Permit - Screening Criteria.  The scores will be totaled for each applicant and the top 4 applications in each category will be eligible to move on to the next Steps.  For a summary of the process, requirements, and selection please review the Cannabis Overview

The City’s overarching goal is to implement a fair process. Occasionally there will be unanticipated issues as the City moves through this process.  The City has prepared Cannabis Administrative Regulations to implement the process in a fair manner that does not allow any applicant to obtain a competitive advantage. These regulations may be updated from time to time to reflect new issues that have arisen through the commercial cannabis permitting process.
