The store’s proposed location is in the 1100 Park Avenue block at Five Corners in downtown Prince Rupert, which falls within the area specifically zoned in the city for retail cannabis sales.

On Dec. 10, the city finalized the zone where cannabis can be sold in Prince Rupert, which was expanded to include the Five Corners block.

As part of the process of completing that application, the city is required to gather feedback from the community, and the notice said comments would be welcomed either in writing or through and email. Owners of the High Culture Shop Inc. are also notifying the residents in the surrounding area that they are considering opening a cannabis store.

Council will hear any public feedback as well as any RCMP or Fire Department recommendations to be considered on Jan. 28 at its regular council meeting.

If approved, city council will be forward application to the province where it will be reviewed by the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch, who will decide whether or not to give the licence the final green light.
