Marijuana superstore debate delayed

The public hearing for a marijuana superstore proposed in Eagle won’t proceed next week, as originally scheduled.
Instead, the proposal will be debated by the Eagle Town Board on April 22.
Denver-based Rocky Mountain Pure Retail Marijuana has proposed a $5 million facility that would include a 6,000-square-foot retail operation and a 22,500-square-foot indoor cultivation center to support the store. The proposal was submitted in late December and was reviewed by the Eagle Planning and Zoning Commission in January. In a split vote, commission members recommended approval of the proposed operation with a number of conditions. The Eagle Town Board will have the final say regarding the proposal.
According to Eagle Town Planner Tom Boni, the town and the applicant mutually agreed to delay the public hearing.
“Our intent is to provide them and the town with the necessary time to prepare for what will probably be a couple of hearings with lots of public comment,” said Boni.
