Potential dispensary sites made public

A GOOD FIT?—Some nearby business owners, including nonprofit Art Trek, are up in arms over news that this building at 711 Rancho Conejo Blvd. is being considered for a medical marijuana dispensary. Currently home of All Star Athletics, the location would be converted if applicant DBO Investments is successful in its application. A meeting to discuss the proposed location and two others will be held tonight inside the Grant Brimhall Library’s community room.

Members of the community have the opportunity to review the three applicants that are finalists for Thousand Oaks’ first medical marijuana dispensary at a meeting tonight beginning at 6 at Grant Brimhall Library.

Last week the city made public the locations the three applicants have put forth; in the end, only one applicant—and therefore one site—will be chosen.

The three sites are:

2712 Conejo Center Drive, Newbury Park

711 Rancho Conejo Blvd., Newbury Park

2400 Willow Lane, Thousand Oaks

In December, the Thousand Oaks City Council enacted an ordinance to allow one medical cannabis dispensary business and one cannabis testing laboratory to operate in the city through a competitive application process.

Three companies have successfully qualified for the fourth and final phase of the screening in hopes of operating the city’s lone marijuana enterprise: DBO Investments LLC, Legendary Organics, and Leaf Dispensary. You can see their respective applications here, here and here.

The council will pick one at its upcoming Tues., July 10 meeting.

According to the city’s website, tonight’s meeting inside the library’s community room will give neighbors and the public at large an opportunity to ask questions and provide comments before the council’s decision.
