Medical Marijuana Facility Permits
On November 9, 2017 City Council adopted Chapter 96 Medical Marijuana Facilities. That ordinance went into effect on November 26, 2017. It describes City of Ann Arbor Medical Marijuana Facility Permits that are required for all facilities. The application is available here for facility permits, or from the City Clerk's office.
Facility Permit Applications require a Zoning Compliance Permit and a Certificate of Occupancy (via a Re-Occupation Permit). Links to these applications are below. Note that Provisioning Centers must obtain a Special Exception Use before applying for either of these.
City Council adopted a Medical Marijuana Facility Zoning Ordinance on December 18, 2017. The ordinance went into effect on February 12, 2018.
All five facility types defined by the State of Michigan MMFLA are permitted in the City, in specific zoning districts. Some facility types require Special Exception Use approval from the City Planning Commission before a Zoning Compliance Permit may be issued. There are no limits on the number of medical marijuana facilites in the City, but they are limited in where they can locate by zoning district and spacing requirements. Please refer to the ordinance links above for all code requirements.
All facilities must provide an approved Zoning Compliance Permit as part of their Medical Marijuana Facility Permit application.
