HCNNC has received an application for a retail cannabis business to open in Chinatown. Because the Central City North Community Plan area (which includes Chinatown, Victor Heights, and Arts District) has already reached the City’s limit for the number of businesses that can be issued retail licenses in that area, the business is asking for an exception to open as a Public Convenience or Necessity.

As part of the City’s cannabis regulations, businesses would provide community benefits, such as donations to non-profits, graffiti cleanup, and others, which are negotiated with the neighborhood council.

Comments can also be submitted to HCNNC by email at board@hcnnc.org or by voicemail at (323) 716-3918.
