MMFLA Application Process Policy PDF
The first round of applications will be accepted by the Township Clerk on May 21, 2018 at 8:00 AM through June 11, 2018 at 4:30 PM. All applications will be assigned a number by the Clerk’S Office. Applications will be reviewed by the Clerk’s Office for completeness, not content. Should there be any missing documentation, applicants will be given seven (7) calendar days to submit the information to complete the application packet.
The applicants will be separated in to two groups. Group 1 will be applicants who currently possess a valid certificate of occupancy within the Industrial Medical Marihuana District for a caregiver operation under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act or who will improve a parcel that is at least twenty five (25) acres and is North of Joy Boulevard so long as such improvement includes a structure that costs at least $1,000,000 and Group 2 will be applicants who do not possess a valid certificate of occupancy within the Industrial Medical Marihuana District for a caregiver operation under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act.
If the number of applicants for any class of permit exceed the total number of permits authorized by the Township Board, the Township Clerk shall first conduct a lottery of Group 1 applicants establishing the order for eligibility for a Township permit. The Township Clerk shall then conduct a lottery of Group 2 applicants placing them in their order for eligibility for a township permit beginning after the group one applicants.
After the order is established, the Township will begin the review process of applicants as required under the ordinance. Applications who meet the standards laid out in the ordinances shall be granted a temporary permit. Applicants will receive their final permit after receipt of state approval and final buildout of the property, subject to all applicable codes and ordinances.
Should an applicant, for whatever reason, be denied the township will then move to the next eligible applicant.
If the original pool of applicants are exhausted and there are remaining permits available from the Township, the window for accepting applicants will be reopened for 30 days and the process above shall repeat.
