SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – The Internal Retail Marijuana Review Committee will be reviewing proposals for recreational marijuana dispensaries in Springfield Monday from 8:00 am to noon.
This is the second round for the city’s review of proposals.
During this first round, only 4 companies will be given host-community agreements. And right now, there are a total of 27 applicants.
The committee has been ranking the proposals for over a month now.
Springfield has set a cap of 15 recreational marijuana stores that could open in the city.
On Tuesday, July 9th, there will be a public announcement about which applicants will receive their licenses.
The city originally said they would choose the four applicants by mid-June, but they had to push it back because of the number of proposals they received.
Hampden County is the only county in western Massachusetts without a retail pot shop.
