After June 10, the AGCO will take into consideration all written comments, and make a decision regarding whether the store location will be approved.

"The majority of the locations of cannabis stores that have popped up in Burlington, including this latest one, meet our City guidelines for where we'd like to see these shops. Burlington was one of the first municipalities to embrace this new form of business and working to make sure these stores are located where they can offer safe access to a legal substance to anyone legally allowed to purchase it is important for our community," Mayor Marianne Meed Ward said in a news release.
