The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has received an application for another cannabis retail store in Burlington.
The store is called The Spot Cannabis and the proposed location would be at 3247 Appleby Line Unit 3-4, the City of Burlington said in a release Wednesday evening (May 27).
The application “is now up for public comment,” the City said in a statement.
The proposed location is about 500 metres from a residential neighbourhood just west of Thomas Alton Boulevard and Appleby Line.
Written comments about the proposed location will be received by the AGCO until June 10 and may be submitted online at www.agco.ca/iAGCO. The AGCO will accept submissions from a resident of the municipality in which the proposed store is located, the municipality representing the area in which the proposed store is located and/or its upper-tier municipality.
Comments submitted to the AGCO should relate to “matters of public interest” such as protecting public health and safety, protecting youth and restricting their access to cannabis and “preventing illicit activities in relation to cannabis,” the City said.
After June 10, the AGCO will consider all written comments and available information to decide whether the application for the proposed store location will be approved.
