The business owner who received approval to open a cannabis dispensary on Arnold Drive in Glen Ellen despite community objections is planning to open a second dispensary on Fremont Drive in Sonoma.
An application to open a dispensary submitted by John Lobro (now known as John Loe) of Sevenfold, Inc. with a listed address of 27 Fremont Drive in Sonoma was approved at the Sonoma County Board of Adjustments (BZA) meeting on March 24. The appeal period for the dispensary ended on April 4, with no appeals made.
Loe plans to open a retail storefront and delivery service that operates from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday in an existing 1,328-square-foot commercial building at 15 Fremont Drive. The building has an adjacent restroom and up to 3,223 sq. ft. of additional space for storage and offices in up to six other existing structures on a 5.09-acre parcel.
Loe also intends to open a cannabis facility, Loe Firehouse Cannabis Dispensary, at 15499 Arnold Drive at the intersection of Madrone Road in Glen Ellen. It will be on a one-third-acre parcel that once housed a fire station and will include 1,891 square
