Fine Fettle has received approval from Stamford’s Zoning Board to convert its newest medical cannabis dispensary into a hybrid retail location.
The Stamford Zoning Board this week voted 3-1 to allow Fine Fettle to sell recreational marijuana as a hybrid cannabis dispensary. The 5,200-square-foot facility at 12 Research Drive opened in late February. It’s the company’s third location in the state.
According to a report from Stamford town officials, Fine Fettle shares the building with ACME Sign Co., and the surrounding businesses are mostly commercial and light industrial users not conflicting with Fine Fettle’s operations.
“With this application you have the opportunity for [a recreational dispensary] to be implemented at the perfect location — this is in the middle of Research Park far away from schools, residences, and it could really economically bolster this area of Stamford,” said Meaghan Miles, Fine Fettle’s representation from law firm Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey. “This isn’t a company that wants to now get in the game because it’s legal in Connecticut, they’ve been doing this for years.”
Company officials said the converted Stamford facility would have 12 registers to account for the increase in customers.
