Half a dozen residents, all of whom said they were opposed to the proposal, were not allowed to speak. Commission Chairwoman Amanda Edwards said the residents all had a chance to speak when the commission considered the plan in January.

“This is a joke,” one of them was heard saying as she left the meeting.

In January, property owner James Dulick presented his request for site plan approval and a conditional zoning certificate. At the time, the business name was presented as “Slightly Toasted.” Right now, the business operates as Lightly Toasted, a vape shop operated by Dulick’s son and his friends. The vape shop will be relocated when the dispensary opens, he has said.
