Dispensary hearing canceled over lease question

An application for a recreational marijuana dispensary would put the store at 843 W. Agate Ave, just outside Granby town limits.

Tuesday’s public hearing for a proposed marijuana dispensary outside Granby was postponed due to a question with the property lease.

Originally scheduled for 1 p.m. Nov. 12, the hearing for IgadI’s application to open a new retail marijuana store in Grand County was removed from the county commissioners’ agenda.

According to Grand County Clerk and Recorder Sara Rosene, the county was informed on Thursday that the building at 843 W. Agate Ave. was being subleased to two tenants.

“The attorney for (the other subleaser) called me and said ‘hey, we’ve got a lease on this property, IgadI can’t do this,’ so we tried to come up with a solution and the only solution we could come up with now is to cancel it,” Rosene said.

David Michel, general counsel for IgadI, said the company has not withdrawn its application, and he expects the hearing to be rescheduled. A new date has not yet been determined.

Prior to the postponed hearing, a number of Granby residents have already voiced their support and their opposition to the proposed dispensary.

The Granby Board of Trustees also sent the county commissioners a letter expressing the board’s opposition while requesting the county deny IgadI’s application.

The proposed dispensary is not actually within town limits, so the county has jurisdiction over the application.

If approved, the store would be IgadI’s second location in Grand County with the first store in Tabernash.
