City council approves marijuana business permit – Three Forks Voice

The Three Forks City Council unanimously approved a conditional use permit to Top Shelf Botanicals Montana LLC. for a marijuana dispensary within the city zoning limits along with a conditional use permit for an existing non-permitted apartment and a minor subdivision request by RCREI Inc. for a RV park in town, during its June 14 meeting.

The marijuana dispensary will open inside a building, which TSB Montana LLC. will remodel, located at the 279 Frontage Road property owned by Rob Norman.

The Three Forks Zoning and Planning Board recommended that the city approve the permit pending the submission of a site plan, which the applicants supplied to the city council prior to the meeting. The plan proposes a 560-square-foot building with four customer parking spaces and one employee space.

While the new marijuana business is not within 500 feet of any restricted buildings, such as a church, school or park, Councilman George Chancellor raised concern that the business’s signs will be too close in proximity to Three Forks High School and that its the first thing people see when they come into town.

“About every kid that goes to school goes by there and then immediately they’re at school,” Chancellor said.
